Mining & Handling


DF specialises in mineral processing and handling projects. With over 40 years' experience and an extensive list of references on the international markets, the company has its own technology and is capable of developing all stages of a project, from engineering to start-up and operation of the installations it constructs under EPC contracts.


DF has major know-how in the mining area thanks to over 150 years' experience, as the company once worked its own mines and had its own processing plants. This has allowed it to specialise in the turnkey construction of this type of installation.

The company deals with all phases of a project: feasibility studies, basic and detailed engineering, equipment supply, construction, commissioning, start-up, assisted operation and maintenance of the facility. For iron ore processing plants DF offers solutions customized to the client's needs, both in terms of design and execution conditions, and includes the following activities.

  • Grinding
  • Milling
  • Classification
  • Separation by magnets
  • Gravity
  • Flotation
  • Heap/tank leaching
  • Sedimentation of residues
Collaboration with technological partners known worldwide means it can develop processing plants for other minerals (gold, copper etc).

The company has a team of highly qualified professionals that cover the wide range of disciplines needed for these types of projects; mechanical, structural, civil, electrical, control and instrumentation.


In the Handling area, DF has over 40 years' experience and an extensive list of references for projects carried out in several countries, which along with major technological developments in this field means that the company can provide optimal solutions adapted to the needs of each customer.

The company has its own means to carry out all the phases of a project, from the feasibility studies, the conceptual development of basic engineering, detailed engineering, supply of equipment, construction, commissioning, start-up, even assisted operation and maintenance of complete turnkey projects and the equipment that makes up these facilities.

  • Mine yards for storage

All of them include in-house state-of-the-art designs for:

  • Dockside machinery: Grab unloaders and ship loaders
  • Chain Conveyors
  • Long distance stockyard machinery: stackers, reclaimers, bucket equipped machinery and combined stackers-reclaimers
  • Other types of stackers/reclaimers: bridge type, for circular piles, sideways reclaimers
  • Train loading and unloading stations
