Mine Water Treatment Plant by Resources Water Technology
Mine Water Treatment Plants are used as part of mining water treatment to reduce water contamination from mineral or chemical contaminants in mine water to levels equal to or below regulatory requirements. In some mining operations, naturally occurring minerals can accumulate to levels that must be reduced prior to introducing mine water to rivers or dams. In other mining operations, water contamination is due to accumulation of metal salts resulting in heavy metal toxicity. Both situations require the use of a mine water treatment plant.
Main components of a Resources Mine Water Treatment Plant include:
Resources Mine Water Treatment Plants operate in four stages which are:
Resources Mine Water Treatment Plants operate by introducing precipitation reagents to the mine water following clarification. These reagents react with the mine water contaminant in the reaction tanks forming a precipitate. The precipitate is then removed from the mine water via multi-media filters. In some cases, more than one water contaminant is removed by selective precipitation in stages. Following treatment, the water is sampled and analyzed by the plant operator to ensure regulatory compliance. Careful chemical investigation and process design ensure the effectiveness of the mine water treatment plant.
