• Clean up tailing ponds

    Our ECO dredgers are very suitable for mine tailing removal to clean up ponds or further process the tailings for leftover valuables.

Mine tailing removal & dredging

Mine tailings are crushed and finely ground rock and mineral waste products of mineral processing operations in mining operations. Tailings can contain leftover chemicals, and are usually deposited in the form of a mud like slurry into tailings ponds. These are sedimentation lagoons enclosed by dams built to capture and store the tailings.

Tailings occur in all sorts of mining operation such as in coal, gold, copper, iron ore and base metal mining. Worldwide, the storage and handling of tailings is a major environmental issue. Our ECO dredgers are very suitable to clean up mine tailings ponds.

In some case the tailings still contain valuable minerals. These tailings can be dredged and pumped to a plant for further processing and capturing the valuables. The ECO dredgers are also a perfect tool for this application.
