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.

Maintenance is easily done by utilizing Watermaster`s suction dredging capabilities and independent moving capabilities.
Watermaster is easy to transport to the site on a trailer and from there the dredger simply walks into the pool by itself. In the pool Watermaster moves with its own propulsion system and can also move to another pool by using its excavator assembly and spuds. It can pump the mass into another pool up to 1,5 kilometres away. By backhoe work it can build and repair the pool banks.
Watermaster can also recover valuable materials from tailings ponds and drainage ponds.

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.
