MINING & TECHNOLOGY AUSTRALIA 2014 | ISSUE 8 25 Site specifc IT'S A TREND THAT'S accelerated since 2010 when torrential rain and devastating foods across Queensland hit most of the state's mines, costing nearly $6 billion in lost production, revenue, taxes and remediation. The fact that many sites were unprepared for the extreme weather or whose existing systems were not robust enough to cope has only given water management a more urgent fnancial urgency. "The drive of water management is to lessen any adverse impact or risk particularly from acid drainage or water salinity and so we're seeing a lot of innovation to achieve that," Davis from EarthSystems said. Smarter processing or cleaner discharge is one of the most active. While coagulation/ clarifcation, chemical treatments, UV, or membrane fltration and Reverse Osmosis (RO) technologies are fairly wide spread across the resources sector-and continuing to evolve- others like Ion exchange, paste technology, evaporators, dry or near-dry processing, and active or passive biological treatment are still emerging. Some companies however, are standing out for their performance or technological innovation. Glencore recently picked up the PACE Awards for Water-Waste Management and Project of the Year for a $3.3 million, 1 megalitre per day capacity Recycled Water Treatment Plant at its Tahmoor Underground Coal Mine in NSW that now supplies nearly all below ground work and has signifcantly cut the company's previous costs to buy in water. Consulting company GHD has also been active at introducing new techniques. It's developed a patented, multi-barrier storm water treatment system called "StormDMT" that's efective for a broad range of contaminants and has now installed for major mining company at the Port of Townsville in Queensland. The company has also patented the Phoenix Water Technology system designed to achieve Zero Liquid Discharge treatment of saline wastewater using low temperature thermal distillation.
