Environmental dewatering solutions for mining and mineral processing - Mining

TenCate Geotube technology provides cost-effective and efficient dewatering and containment in the mining and mineral processing industry. In mining and mineral processing (mine tailings, coal sludge, etc), TenCate Geotube dewatering technology enables the recovery of valuable materials, provides structural stability, improves water quality, or reduces storage footprint by sometimes 50 to 80%. Conditioners or polymers are normally used to promote flocculation to improve dewatering rates, solids retention, filtrate quality and increase in solids consolidation within the tubes.

Simple, Versatile TenCate Geotube Dewatering Technology Is Ideal For:

  • Pond and Lagoon Maintenance (polishing ponds)
  • Tailings Management
  • Water Resource Management (water reclamation and reuse)
  • Beneficial Reuse (dyke and berm construction)
  • Precious Metals Recovery
  • Emergency and Disaster Management (uninterrupted mining operations)
  • Acid Mine Drainage (for active or inactive mines)
  • Specialty Applications
  • Geosynthetics
