Almalyk Mining and Metallurgical Combine (AMMC) in Uzbekistan plans to build a new copper concentration plant, Trend reports.

The TOMS Research and Design Institute (Russia) will develop a project for a new factory, which is scheduled to be launched by 2022, according to AMMC.

The new factory will use rational schemes for enrichment of minerals, which, among other things, will make it possible to increase the output of marketable products - copper, molybdenum and gold.

The Russian side should provide for the possibility of processing oxidized ores, slags and old tailings tailings, which will also provide an opportunity to increase the production of copper and gold.

The TOMS Research and Design Institute will be involved in the modernization of two operating copper enrichment plants. Here the work will begin next year.

These factories are now processing sulphide copper-molybdenum ores from the Kalmakyr and Sary-Chek deposits, from which, in addition to non-ferrous metals, precious and rare metals are extracted.

Equipment of factories are outdated and need to be updated, AMMC notes. The modernization will improve the technological performance and introduce modern technological solutions for the enrichment of copper-molybdenum ores.
