Through dewatering, a Veolia and Genesis partnership will help mining companies improve tailings management.
of the project is to improve internal water balance in a sustainable solution so that water can be recycled from the tailings pond back to the mill. The treatment plant will include two trains of ACTIFLO clarifier and Hydrotech Discfilters and the
water treatment plant at the Coeur Palmarejo silver and gold mine in Mexico will enable water to be recycled from the tailings pond back to the mill. Crown Solutions , a Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies company, will supply the initial equipment
goldmine in South America was in need of a low O&M system to treat ammonia from the cyanide-laden water in its tailings pond . Over 16,000 m3/day of water required treatment prior to discharge to the adjacent river. A treatability test
at pH between 4.5 to 5.0. Thats then followed by flocculation with an anionic polyelectrolyte. Alternately, tailings pond water can be stored in shallow well aerated pits for one to two years. During this period, natural processes can
and ammonia in wastewater generated by mining operations -- WARRENDALE, PA, Nov. 3, 2006 -- Pilot operations at tailings pond discharges in Canada and Africa show the Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) process can be designed to economically

After being precipitated out with barium chloride, the radium is contained and pumped by pipeline to the middle of the tailings pond , some 40 feet under water. However, overall the plant personnel deal with very low levels of radiation. Even if
