REDUCE WATER MANAGEMENT RISKS & IMPROVE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY
MINETEK understands the need to manage process and produced water throughout the lifecycle of a mine site to achieve true economic and environmental sustainability. MINETEK has developed a range of mine dewatering and water evaporation solutions to help mining operators meet the expectations of their stakeholders.
We have developed the world's most cost-effective mechanical evaporation technology solutions enabling mining leaders to achieve operational excellence in a wide range of challenging operating conditions.
Successful water management services in mining are critical to achieving operational efficiency and environmental compliance. The effective management of water is a critical factor for a mine sites ability to achieve safety, profitability and sustainability objectives. Risks posed by tailings dams, pit flooding, site remediation and contaminate management significantly impact mining operation's ability to achieve regulatory and environmental compliance.
MINETEK's proven mechanical evaporation solutions have helped hundreds of mine sites globally to achieve compliance and meet mine dewatering objectives.
Kipoi have successfully utilized MINETEK WATER evaporators on our process water pond to remove mine water and has contributed to help with our water balance. We are currently in the process of moving these units to where the catchment area is larger giving us better utilization of the evaporators.
It was completed with no incidents or injuries, with no delays, and ahead of schedule. The plan was for 10 shifts, and it was completed in 7 shifts.
MINETEK's installations have been very successful and prompted the contracting of MINETEK to conduct a full mobile fleet and fixed plant noise monitoring assessment at the Acland mine site.
After investigating a raft of different methods from sprinkler systems through to desalination systems (too costly for little benefit) we decided on the MINETEK WATER units. The evaporators were easy to install and once activated ran trouble free. We were very happy with the service from MINETEK and the reliability of the system.
The relatively small fans allowed us to utilise our existing bulkhead, where we were severely limited by space, which allowed us to use our existing infrastructure and dramatically reduce downtime in the mine during the change out. The installation was completed safely... and allows us to scale our ventilation flow with their pressure on demand system to suit our production profile.
