Indirect Treatment of Slurry
P2W’s technology for the indirect treatment of slurryis applied specifically for the purpose of removing all extractable contaminants, especially the ones that were produced by the chemical addition in the ore leach process.
The first stage of the process is the extraction phase that enables us to remove all extractable contaminants from the slurry followed by, if required, a dewatering stage for achieving a higher recovery rate.
The second stage of the process is to destruct all the extractable contaminants from the original slurry to levels that are below the regulation levels. This is achieved by applying the various proven water treatment technologies of P2W.
The total treatment cycle forms raw slurry into two main products: clean water and slurry. This allows the mine to save huge amounts of funds on the CAPEX and OPEX related to the construction and maintenance of the TSF and cuts future expenses for future soil rehabilitation.
