The mining and mineral processing industry relies on water for all aspects of its operations. Water treatment and specialty chemical programs are critical to ensuring maximum recovery and throughput while helping minimize downtime and mitigate environmental, health, and safety risks.


It is crucial for a water treatment supplier to have a complete and thorough knowledge of mining and mineral processing unit operations to ensure chemical programs are applied to maximize recovery and production without harming downstream operations, risking employee safety, or increasing environmental risk. Our seasoned mining and mineral processing team has the experience and expertise to assist with the development, implementation, and optimization of treatment programs in complex mining and mineral processing situations.
