The minerals sector requires the treatment of large water volumes. Depending on the type of mining and processing arrangement, this can relate to water produced or water required for the various operations.
Often, the only possible water source for in-land mines in arid areas is desalinated seawater. On the other hand, the treatment of decant water – as a result of mining operations – may be required for safe discharge to the environment. Here again applications may range from treatment of raw water to the recovery of water and/or valuable to a ZLD requirement.
At PROXA we have a variety of technologies at our disposal for the treatment of surface water, brackish and seawater, as well as mine and process waters, including the beneficiation of recoverable salts and other by-products.
