Used primarily for minerals processing, slurry transport, dust suppression and cooling processes a sustainable water management circuit is critical to maintaining long-term viable mining operations.
The effective management of water within mining processes is critical to achieving operational efficiency, with hydro-economic impactors weighing heavily on the ability for global miners to achieve safety, profitability and sustainability objectives.
MINETEK WATER understands the need to manage process and produced water throughout the lifecycle of a mine site to achieve true economic and environmental sustainability and has developed a range of water evaporation and water quality management solutions to help mining operators meet the expectations of their stakeholders.
From excess water removal and recycling, ensuring the safe operation of potentially dangerous tailings dams, through to acid mine dewatering and the removal of toxic metals to improve the quality of water released back into the environment, MINETEK WATER has a solution to meet the strictest of regulations and satisfy operational and broader community expectations.
Effectively manage mine to access recoverable resources in the toughest conditions to keep your mine operational while meeting regulatory requirements.
TAILINGS WATER MANAGEMENT
Our mechanical evaporation solutions help deliver safe, reliable management of Mine Affected Water (MAW) in Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF) around the world.
ACID MINE DRAINAGE
Effective management of the outflow of toxic acid water is critical in any minerals processing operation. MINTEK WATER offer a sustainable solution to remove leachates and sulphidic mine wastes from contaminated groundwater via the evaporation process.
ZERO LIQUID DISCHARGE (ZLD)
As stakeholder and community expectations grow in regard to environmental sustainability, so have restrictions around the release of contaminated waters into mine surrounds. Explore MINETEK’s capabilities in assisting mine sites to achieve Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD).
LEGACY & MINE CLOSURE
MINETEK has developed extensive capabilities in supporting mining operators as well as government department and regulatory bodies around the world to deliver fast and cost-effective management water processes within legacy and planned mine site closures.
WASTEWATER TREATMENT SOLUTIONS
Mine water (or mining wastewater) refers to the ground water that is extracted from mining activities. Mining wastewater not only contains heavy metal and mineral, but also is toxic because of mining process. This wastewater needs to be treated before discharged back to nature or underground water mining on mining sites.
TOTAL SITE WATER BALANCE MANAGEMENT
MINETEK offers a broad range of products and services to help industrial leaders achieve total site water balance management; from short-term emergency response through to long-term sustainability focused initiatives.
PROCESS WATER DISPOSAL
A by-product of all mining is process water and the need to store, transfer, treat or remove it to ensure regulatory compliance is universal. Explore MINETEK’s capabilities to cost-effectively, sustainably and efficiently manage process water.
SALINE WATER SOLUTIONS
Brine is formed in the mining process when brackish groundwater comes into contact with either surface water or sea water. The result is a highly saline by-product which cannot be released back into the environment due to high levels of contaminants and Total Dissolvable Solids (TDS).
Rely on MINETEK’s water evaporation experience to reduce the impacts and expedite
recovery from unplanned water management incidents.
