DRC order for Sandvik


Staff reporter

Sweden’s Sandvik has won an order for underground mining equipment worth about US$20 million for use at the giant Kamoa-Kakula copper complex in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Chinese contractor JCHX Mining Management Co subsidiary, Jimond Mining Management Company (JMMC), bought the Sandvik Toro TH663i trucks, Toro LH621i loaders and DL432i long-hole production drills.

Deliveries are scheduled for the first nine months of 2024.

“Sandvik’s intelligent load and haul equipment has been in operation at Kamoa-Kakula since 2019, and I am pleased to see us again selected to supply our highly productive offering,” Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions president Mats Eriksson said.

“With this order we also expand our collaboration with JMMC to include intelligent underground drills, a testament to the strength of our solutions offering.”
