Mining Industry Treatment Process

Mining Industry Treatment Process

Wastewater from extractive operations ( bauxite, coal, copper, gold, silver, diamonds, iron, precious metals, lead, limestone, magnesite, nickel, phosphate, oil shale, rock salt, tin, uranium, molybdenum) has to be properly managed in order to prevent any water or soil pollution arising from acid or alkaline leaching of heavy metals. With the right system in place, treatment of these waste streams can be easy to manage. Ecologix Environmental Systems has extensive experience in the design and installation of these types of systems and we'd be glad to consult, design, and build the right solution for your operation. Contact us for more information on how we can help.

This plant design integrates a 200 gallon per minute lamella clarifier with chemical mixing tanks, flow equalization, clearwell tank and raised platform for a sludge dewatering filter press. This system removes solids and metals from groundwater, and is upstream of a deionization process.
