A first for Latin America
Sandvik Mining recently sold three units of its largest underground loader, Sandvik LH621, to one of the biggest local mining companies in Peru, Votorantim Group-owned Milpo.
The loaders will start at Milpo’s Cerro Lindo polymetallic mine this year. The deal also includes two Sandvik LH514 models for Milpo’s El Porvenir mine. These are the first Sandvik LH621 loaders ever sold in Latin America, and will be the first 21-tonne capacity loaders to operate in the region. A large number of Sandvik LH621 units are in operation in Australia, Europe, Africa and North America.
By adding these units to its fleet, Milpo can expect to see an increase in the amount of ore transported each loading and hauling cycle.
