MANAGING Mining WATER quality
Mining methods such as quarrying and milling use water for the extraction of minerals in processes called grinding, separating and dust suppression.
The water used may be municipal wastewater or deep groundwater that is already of poor quality so needs to be carefully managed and treated afterwards to ensure it does not contaminate nearby water sources.
Due to their often remote locations, mining operations may have additional requirements for the provision of safe drinking and camp water.
UV disinfection systems form an important part of the water treatment and storage processes. More information on the types of systems available can be found here.
