TORONTO, May 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hudbay Minerals Inc. (“Hudbay” or the “company”) (TSX, NYSE: HBM) is pleased to announce that Matthew Taylor, Executive Director, Metallurgy Technical Services at Hudbay, has received the 2022 Mineral Processor of the Year Award from the Canadian Mineral Processors (“CMP”), the technical society of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (“CIM”), at an award ceremony last week.
This honour is awarded in recognition of outstanding results achieved in tackling a significant mineral processing challenge and relates to Mr. Taylor’s work on the Snow Lake and New Britannia processing strategy. A novel copper facility was installed at Hudbay’s New Britannia mill in 2021, which consists of an innovative and first-of-its-kind flotation circuit based entirely on Jameson cells, a modern pneumatic flotation design that offers a compact layout, low-cost process and flexible flowsheet.
“Matthew has been a valued member of the Hudbay team for over three years, whose contributions have not only been recognized internally, but also by his peers in the mining community,” said Peter Kukielski, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Matthew has been instrumental in the implementation of the innovative flotation circuit at New Britannia and led the design of our processing facilities at our Copper World project. We would like to extend our congratulations to Matthew for receiving this very prestigious award.”
