:: Largest ISASMELT Doubles Capacity of Indian Copper Smelter  

MIM Process Technologies has signed a contract to supply a new ISASMELT furnace to Indian mining giant Sterlite Industries for a copper smelter in Tuticorin, India.

The deal announced by the Premier of Queensland, Peter Beattie, during a trade and investment mission to India recently, is the largest capacity of any ISASMELT plant built to date. The Premier congratulated MIM Process Technologies for its success in exporting Smart State Technology.

He said the Sterlite contract built on MIMs reputation as a leading edge supplier of technology to the world metals and mineral processing industries.

ISASMELT is a smelting technology developed by MIM at its Mount Isa copper and lead smelters. Further development and successful marketing of the technology is carried out by MIMs Process Technologies group in Brisbane. There are now eight large-scale ISASMELT smelters operating around the world and a further two under construction.
