Through the application of modern mining technologies, WesTech helps to assure that the byproducts of minerals extraction process are made inert, reliably contained and kept from causing environmental damage. Implementation of WesTech tailings processing technology assures protection of the groundwater, surface waters, wildlife and communities which in the past have been the victims of tailings dam leaks and levy failures.

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.

GEOWEB geocells offer a better “solution set” to soil stability challenges for accessing sites over soft ground, controlling and containing stormwater, protecting geomembranes for basins, tailings, and heap leach pads, and reclaiming slopes at the time of closure. Through 3D confinement and strengthening of infill, less material—even on-site waste rock—may be used. GEOWEB solutions offer increased speed of operation, lower maintenance, safer installation, and a lower total cost of ownership.

Mining waste typically arises from the limitation of the installed technologies of an operation, e.g. where fines cannot be tolerated. They are associated with mine workings and often contain valuable and/or hazardous materials. The hazardous content, which are often the valuable fractions within this waste are typically metals. Spread of metal toxicants in association with tailings particles, through a combination of wind dispersion or if washed into the soil or rivers, can have a highly damaging effect on the environment. Crucially, as time moves on, the mine tailing of one generation become the resource of the next.
