Sandvik will continue executing major materials handling contracts in South America and Australia until 2015.

A surface mine in South America will benefit from an 8.9-kilometre conveying system comprising two iron ore transfer conveyors with capacities up to 28,500 tonnes per hour and two 9,500-tonne capacity waste conveyor lines.

The Australian contracts include design, supply and delivery of materials handling equipment for iron ore stacking at peak rates of more than 11,500 tonnes per hour.
