Water Solutions for the Mining Industry
This crucial sector to the economy is highly dependent on water treatment technologies. Mining operations rely on large water quantities and an uninterrupted water supply.
Water re-use can significantly reduce costs and the mining sector faces strict legislation to minimise environmental degradation.
WaterIcon supplies the following solutions to the mining industry:
- Water treatment for all mining processes
- Acid mine water treatment and drainage
- Wastewater management to minimise environmental impact
- Water re-use
- Sludge stream treatment
- Sewage water treatment and potable water supply for mine camps
Key water treatment technologies for the mining industry:
- Pre-packaged plants
- Mineral processing solutions
Acid mine water
Acid mine water, containing toxic and sometimes radioactive chemicals, continues to be a problem in communities and is a serious compliance challenge for the mining industry.
WaterIcon draws on its world class reverse osmosis and membrane separation products and technologies to treat acid mine water before it is discharged into the environment and we have successfully produced quality potable water from acid mine water. This does not only help mines comply with strict environmental regulations, but reduces their costs by providing them with a safe source of water for re-use and recycling.
