Filtered Tailings Technologies

Miners are often looking to reduce the risks and costs that can come with wet tailings, such as dam failures, end-of-life costs and difficult land reclamation post closure.

Filtering and dry stacking tailings reduces environmental impact and water demand, and significantly decreases the footprint of the tailings storage facility.
