Cost Effective Solutions for Acid Mine Drainage & Tailings Treatment


Mining presents many wastewater challenges, including rain water run-off and tailings pond water treatment in remote and sometimes freezing conditions.  However, mining wastewater treatment does have some advantages — large settling ponds allow for the use of long settling times to achieve excellent metal and total suspended solids (TSS) removal.  Results can often be very effective with the use of only one coagulant.

The performance of these systems is often critical for the natural environment surrounding the facility as the effluent is usually discharged into a lake or stream.  Very tight release limits are required as well as precise real time online monitoring to ensure discharge limits are consistently met.  JNE Environmental can help to meet these discharge limits — contact us today for a free, no-obligation site visit.
