Mine Water Treatment Systems

Active Water Treatment Solutions

Experience with the permitting process is key to any water treatment project’s success. Without working knowledge of discharge criteria and the impact on the receiving environment, you may be unnecessarily committed to expensive treatment limits.

Working with us will expose you to our experience working with regulators to negotiate discharge limits, navigate permitting processes, and provide you with the water monitoring services required to monitor and maintain compliance.

Once established, we work with our clients to build both passive and active treatment systems that leverage the right technology for the application.

Mine Water Treatment Facilities

Without a vested interest in any water treatment technology, our mining water experts are free to maximize economic and technical trade-offs between the treatment approach and equipment selection.

We assist at every stage of the treatment train:

  • Clarification/softening
  • Distillation of reject streams
  • Acid rock drainage treatment systems
  • Passive water treatment (see separate page)
  • Membrane systems
  • Water load balance modelling
  • High-density sludge
  • Ion-exchange
  • Sulfide precipitation
  • Arsenic
  • Selenium
  • Ammonia
  • Sulphates

Managing Risk and Accountability

Effective communication across stakeholders, contractors, and engineering, is critical for building the transparency required to deliver your project. 

Our fully integrated equipment supply chain provides you with the required engineering design, procurement, expediting, fabrication, inspection, testing, and preparation needed for any package.

We take ownership of our water treatment approach throughout the entire project and can share risk so that we are partners in our client’s success.  

Many of our projects are delivered under a fixed cost structure and include design, build, and operate options. Additionally, you can benefit from our ability and willingness to provide financial and partnership opportunities that could help see your project to completion.
