Success stories

Largest mixer in the corporate history of BHS

December 2019
After winning an international tender, BHS-Sonthofen was commissioned with constructing the largest mixer in the company’s history. An Indian zinc mine operator required a mixer with a very large filling capacity. The proven Combimix system with overflow was custom-built by BHS-Sonthofen in this extraordinary size and shipped off to India. Ease of maintenance, implementation of all customer requirements and a local service office convinced the Indian customer to opt for BHS-Sonthofen.

Combimix proves itself in Canada’s ‘Valley of the Kings’

May 2017
The Brucejack Gold Mine in the province of British Columbia, Canada commenced operation in the summer of 2017. It uses a Combimix mixer supplied by BHS-Sonthofen to stabilize the tailings – fine-grained residues from gold mining used for backfilling the mine. Among other things, the mixer sets itself apart with especially high availability at the remote location on Brucejack Lake.
