Metso Minerals will supply cone crushers to Codelco, the Chilean national mining company, for the expansion of its Andina Divisions’ Los Andes project in Chile. The start-up for the crushers is scheduled for the second quarter of 2009. The value of this order is approximately EUR 7 million. The order is included in Metso’s third quarter order backlog.
