SPH Kundalila Places Lokotrack LT120: Crushing Fleet at Platinum Mine: Another One

SPH Kundalila Places Lokotrack LT120

SPH Kundalila has placed another Lokotrack® LT120TM from local distributor Pilot Crushtec to work in a pit-open platinum mine near Rustenburg in South Africa’s North West province, reaffirming its faith in Metso Outotec crushers.

The Lokotrack LT120 mobile jaw crushing unit was purchased in early 2021 and added to the fleet at the mine where SPH Kundalila has been crushing for the customer since 2013.
“The new machine is part of our ongoing plant renewal process, ensuring that our fleet performs optimally with high uptime levels,” Graeme Campbell, Group Commercial Manager at SPH Kundalila, says.

“We already have four of these models on other operations, and they have all been strong and reliable production units.”

For the mine’s mineral processing plant, the crusher fleet on this project processes 350,000-400,000 t/mth of platinum ore. Material can be up to 800 mm in size when it enters the crusher, but it is fragmented to a product of 250 mm or less for delivery to the plant.
According to the business, the track-mounted LT120 gives the mine the necessary flexibility to maintain a consistent grade for the plant by moving crushers as needed to treat ore from various places on site.
Dean Zeelie, SPH Kundalila Operations Manager, says the Metso mobile crushers have proven to be dependable in front-line, hard-rock applications in the company’s contracts, with one machine clocking nearly 25,000 hours to date.
