Pumps upgrade significantly reduces plant shutdowns at Mungari Gold Mine
Close collaboration between Mungari and Metso Outotec results in new robust design, delivering longer pump wear and reduces shutdowns from three to one per year.
With a mixture of open pit and underground mining, the Mungari site presents considerable variability in the nature of the ore. While the ore from the underground mine is reasonably soft, the open pit ore is quite hard and high in extremely abrasive silica.
