Gold & Copper Mine, Indonesia

Water Recovery & Field Operation System

CLIENT GOAL

  • Recycle waste water to minimize total waste discharge to the environment and reduce overall water cost.

  • Improve mineral yield through its H2O floatation system as part of its metallurgical operation.

SOLUTION

  • Invest and install a turn-key Water Recovery system on-site that reprocesses mining wastewater into process and/or grey water.

  • Design and implement a supply chain and field operation system that allows the mine metallurgic operation to custom design its floatation formula according to their ore batch, thus optimizing the yield for each batch.

IMPACT

  • Significant reduction in total water cost.

  • Up to 4% increase of mineral yield.

  • Up to 15% p.a. savings of lime consumption.
