HELSINKI, FINLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/13 --  Metso
Corporation's press release on April 15, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. local time 
With Metso, the whole copper ore process of the mine will be handled
with one
solutions provider 
Metso has signed two repeat orders with Altay Polimetally LLP for
their open pit copper mine in Almaty, Kazakhstan. The orders include
the design, supply, installation and commissioning of complete
secondary, tertiary and quaternary
crushing and screening plants as
well as an automation system. The combined value of the orders is EUR
25 million. The two new contracts follow the delivery
of the world's
biggest fully mobile crushing and conveying system, signed in
June
2012 for a value of EUR 11 million. 
"For our new copper ore deposit, we need cost efficient processes and
reliability based on a seamlessly working partnership. We do not need
multiple
intermediaries, and by choosing Metso, we are working with a
market leader who
has a long experience in mining and construction
operations," says Mr. Yun, Dr.
of Technical Sciences, CEO and
Chairman of the Board, Altay Polimetally LLP. 
"These major orders demonstrate Metso's strength in offering
equipment and process know-how to meet the customer's operational
requirements. Our close collaboration with Altay Polimetally during
the design of the project certainly
contributed to choosing Metso as
the sole solutions provider," comments Serge de Backer, Business
Manager, Crusher Systems, Mining and Construction, Metso. 
To achieve the customer's objective for a minimum number of
operators, Metso
also supplies Altay a complete automation system to
run the whole process. The
electrical systems can withstand the harsh
climatic conditions (from +30 degreesC to -30 degreesC) and provide
efficient plant control. 
The secondary and tertiary crushing plant order was included in Metso
Mining and Construction's fourth quarter 2012 orders received, and
the quaternary crushing
plant in the first quarter 2013 orders
received. The installations will be delivered by July 2014. 
Crushers to allow high output 
The secondary and tertiary plants include one GP500S cone crusher
with large
feed opening, and two HP5 co
ne crushers with high reduction
ratio. Two high-efficiency MF 3085-2 screens will be used for
screening. The planned output of the copper ore processing plant is
550 metric tons per hour, resulting in 3 million tons per year of
0/10 mm sized end products. The quaternary crushing
plant will
produce 0/3 mm sized ore with a capacity of 450 metric tons per
hour.
Two Barmac 9100 vertical shaft impactors are used, one of them
in operation and
one stand-by. Here, another two MF 3085-2 screens
are used. 
Altay Polimetally LLP, based in Almaty, Kazakhstan, will extract at
the new mine
copper ore including gold. The planned ore extraction
will be 3 million tons per year, and including host rock 10 million
tons. The CEO and Chairman of the Board
of Altay Polimetally LLP Mr
Yun previously held the position of CEO of Kazakhmys
Corporation
between 1995 and 2006. He was instrumental in increasing the
production of copper cathodes from 90,000 to 420,000 tons per year.
