OUTOTEC OYJ PRESS RELEASE MARCH 22, 2013 at 2:00 PM

Outotec cooperates with Maschinenfabrik Köppern to expand its comminution
products

Outotec has agreed with Maschinenfabrik Köppern GmbH & Co. KG on cooperation
in the manufacture and supply of Outotec branded comminution products as part
of Outotec's process solutions. Köppern is a global leader in high-pressure
grinding roll (HPGR) technology as well as a world leader for briquetting and
compaction solutions. Köppern's HPGR will complement Outotec's comminution
technologies and services and strengthen Outotec's market position. Outotec's
comminution product range includes autogenous (AG) mills, semi-autogenous
(SAG) mills, high intensity grinding (HIGmills), rod mills, ball mills and
pebble mills.

HPGR technology is used in grinding iron, gold, copper and other hard rock
ores. HPGR can also replace secondary crushing or primary grinding, which
results in several benefits, such as lower energy consumption and high
throughput in the mineral processing. Grinding is the most energy intensive
phase in minerals and metals processing - even a small energy saving in the
comminution phase will significantly increase the concentrator's profitability
and sustainability.

"Partnership with Köppern will broaden our scope of delivery. We can offer our
customers a wide range of sustainable comminution solutions and tailor the
most energy efficient solution for each customer", says Jari Rosendal,
President of Outotec's Non-ferrous Solutions business area. 

"As an independent and family-owned manufacturer and solution-supplier, we are
proud to partner with Outotec on an exclusive basis to enhance our world-wide
market potential for HPGR applications" says Christopher Schafer, Managing
Director of Köppern.
