MINE WATER MANAGEMENT
MINE WATER MANAGEMENT - WEBINAR ON DEMAND
WEBINAR TOPIC: The five key lessons learned in implementing a mining water evaporation solution.
In this mine water management webinar, learn from the experts in mine water treatment themselves. Water evaporation offers immense value when compared to traditional methods of water management. A regular feature in most water management plans; conventional tailings storage and management facilities (TSF) are often laden with significant upfront and ongoing costs.
Water evaporation can assist in achieving economic and environmental sustainability. It offers an innovative approach to water management that can reduce the overall operating costs by up to 50%, as well as reduce the size of tailings or storage dams, defer TSF lifts, or altogether eliminate the need to construct new dams.
Join key speaker Duane Thompson, Head of Water Minetek, and special guests Ed Kelleher, Director of Environment and Camilo Martinez, Environment Technical Manager from Lundin Mining Corporation, for: Mine Water Management; The five key lessons learned in implementing a mining water evaporation solution.
This informative mine water management webinar will probe the five key lessons learned during the project. Facilitated by Minetek Water Regional Manager, Tom Wiggins, this interactive webcast is a must for those responsible for planning, managing and water circuits in industrial settings and will explore key operational themes including, safety and regulatory compliance as well as operational impacts and environmental considerations.
Our speakers, with over 50 years of combined experience in the industry will discuss the recent implementation of a water evaporation system at the Lundin Mining site.
The webinar will give practical insights into the following key areas:
- Education: understanding water evaporation systems
- Selection: comparing water evaporation to other solutions in the market
- Performance: assessing the capability of water evaporation systems
- Application: engineering and installing a new system
- Outcome: evaluating the results
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.
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.
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 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 found the MINETEK WATER team listened and supported our situation with helpful guidance and advice to layout the evaporator pipework maximising their efficiency. I would highly recommend the units to others needing a cost effective solution to excess water.”
