Tailings Management Systems

The processing and storage of mine tailings is a key environmental issue for mining projects around the world. Utilizing its expertise in slurry dewatering technologies, Westpro offers turnkey Tailings Management Systems that allow owners to reduce or eliminate costly tailings ponds by producing stackable tailings.

These systems utilize combinations of the company’s line of dewatering equipment to reduce the volume of the tailings slurry produced by the mill. An added benefit is the recovery of water for reuse in the process or elsewhere around the site.

Westpro’s scope for tailings management systems may include (based on project requirements):

  • High capacity clarifier or thickener
  • High density underflow (HDU) thickeners
  • Flocculant mixing system
  • Filter press or belt filter
  • Agitated tanks for clarifier feed to filter feed
