A simple, robust design and process:

  • Tailings fed via dredge or direct from plant thickener underflow

  • Inline flocculation

  • Dewatered material to direct placement in the dump

  • Filtrate water returned to process

Benefits of mobility include:

  • Elimination of rehandle & trucking through direct placement of dewatered tailings into final position

  • Flexibility in changing deposition location

  • All weather operation

  • Supplement existing TSF requirements

Possible elimination of TSF's and all associated risks

Ability for greater progressive rehabilitation and reduction in ESG liabilities

Simple integration into existing operations

Increased water recovery and control of water management

Contractor model delivers significant cost reduction in comparison to existing technology

Environmental benefits include:

  • Mitigation of off-site contamination through TSF failures and leaks

  • Reduction in carbon footprint via electric equipment and elimination of material rehandle 

  • Ability to decommission TSF's for final closure and landform relinquishment
