Mining

Osmoflo treats more water used in mining than any other company in Australia. Our plants provide process and drinking water from raw water of wide ranging quality and salinity. So it is not surprising that our client list includes many of the blue chip mining companies operating in Australia and throughout the world.    

Invariably mining operations are in remote locations where extreme weather conditions prevail. Osmoflo has a long established track record in providing and supporting the right equipment that guarantees reliability of water supplies for drinking and process requirements. PlantConnect®, Osmoflo's proprietary plant control and monitoring system linked to our 24 hour manned Operations Control Centre, helps ensure efficient performance regardless of location.

Applications include;

  • desalinated drinking and general use water
  • high purity water for processing ore and minerals
  • water for gas turbine operation
  • treatment of mine drainage water for release back into natural water catchments

Osmoflo’s Mining Case Studies

Chilean based Copper Mining Company engages Osmoflo to ensure

The Antucoya copper project aims at producing an average of 80,000t/y of copper cathodes from an open pit and heap leaching-SX-EW facilities. It will require 7,000 workers during the construction phase and then generate 1,400 jobs during the ensuing operational phase.

Compliant Discharge of Minewater

Following the failure of an existing RO desalination plant, Osmoflo were asked to double the original plant output at Ulan Coal Mine.

Osmoflo supports innovative Mine Water Treatment

Virtual Curtain (VC) technology used to remove metal contaminants from 50,000m3 of wastewater; the equivalent of around 20 Olympic swimming pools.

Process and potable water for gold mining

New technologies resulting in reduced production costs allowed for Newmont to re-open their Boddington gold mine. Osmoflo supplied a reverse osmosis plant to provide high purity process water and drinking water needed on the site.
