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 session 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 combined experience in the industry will discuss the recent implementation of a water evaporation system at Lundin Mining site.

The webinar will give practical insights to 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

Who should attend? This webinar will explore water management solutions relevant to Mine Managers, Maintenance Managers, Environment Managers, Engineering Manager.
