Wastewater Treatment Solutions
COST-EFFECTIVE MINE WATER TREATMENT
Wastewater treatment solutions involve removing contaminants from mine water, or 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.
Minetek has developed extensive capabilities in processing and evaporating this highly contaminated water with no pretreatment required for the evaporators.
With the capability to evaporate water with high levels of Total Dissolvable Solids (TDS) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) and pH range as low as 1.8 and as high as 14, Minetek's water evaporation solutions offer versatility and a cost-effective solution to managing mine waste water.
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.
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.
MINETEK provides quality, proven solutions and are established as leading air attenuation specialists.
MINETEK will continue to be a favoured technical resource and supplier to the New Hope Group and are recommended as a professional, respected and competent supplier of technical services, equipment and products for noise abatement and other industrial products.
We are always looking at new innovations and technologies that will benefit both us and our clients. Minetek has been able to display that with the use of their modern ventilation technology, where we can look to see production increases through faster re-entry times and reduced capital costs in the total life of the development, delivering value to both us and Mincor.
