Mine tailing removal & dredging

Mine tailing dredging is used for cleaning up tailing ponds, removing leftover chemicals or capturing leftover valuables. Mine tailings consist of crushed, finely ground rock and waste products from mineral processing operations in mining. Due to chemical components, storage and handling of tailings has become a major environmental issue worldwide. Therefore, mine tailing dredging provides an efficient solution to clean up mine tailings ponds, especially when tailings contain dangerous contaminants.

Mine tailing dredging equipment

Mine tailing dredging equipment depends on the nature of the materials to be dredged. When mine tailings contain leftover chemicals, they must be dredged and disposed of with precision. Therefore, in this case, Auger dredger ECO 200, which can accurately remove thin layers of sediments may be a suitable tool for the dredging project. However, if more power is required due to more compact, harder materials, cutter suction dredgers are a more appropriate equipment choice.
