TAILINGS RECLAMATION AND REPROCESSING

If you have a tailings pit sitting idle, we're here to help you turn it into a profitable asset.

WHAT IS IT

Turn your liability into a lucrative asset with our tailings reprocessing and reclamation services.

Tailings are the mine waste materials left over after the extraction of desired minerals from ore. Traditionally, these materials are discarded into tailings storage facilities, taking up valuable space and posing environmental risks. However, with our tailings reprocessing and reclamation technology, these materials can be reclaimed and transformed into valuable economic resources.

 

OUR SOLUTION:

By deploying advanced techniques such as hydraulic mining and pelletising, we can extract the remaining minerals from tailings, reducing environmental impact and and recover valuable metals. This not only helps in environmental reclamation, but also presents significant financial benefits to mining operations

HYDRAULIC MINING

We offer comprehensive hydraulic mining services to extract minerals from tailings with precision and efficiency. Our expertise ranges from the supply of hydraulic cannons to the installation and day-to-day  operation of hydraulic mining systems.

What sets our hydraulic mining service apart is its safety and convenience. Our systems can be operated remotely using a simple tablet interface, ensuring the safety of operators while maximizing efficiency. With XR3’s hydraulic mining solutions, you can unlock the full potential of your tailings while minimizing operational risks.

WHY HYDRAULIC MINING?

Our techniques provide a process that ensures:

  • Improved resource utilisation
  • Cost-effective remediation of environmental liabilities
  • Re-use of tailings storage facilities
  • Safety, cost and environmental advantages over other methodologies
  • Minimal interaction with operations
  • Telemetry to monitor tonnages and densities
  • Consistent production tonnage and density to client specification

 

We Offer:

Turnkey project development services from scoping to detailed design. Our services further extend to the supply of specialised hydraulic mining equipment, mobilisation and establishment including the commissioning and operation for the duration of the tailings reserves.

Our strong partnerships with processing specialists enable the design and operation of complete end-to-end mining and processing solutions

Hybrid solutions incorporating conventional load and haul can be provided where appropriate

HOW IT WORKS:

Track-mounted, remote operated water cannons project a high pressure jet of water to the target material in planned sections.

The resulting slurry gravity feeds to a collection sump for pumping to a nearby booster station and onwards for re-processing.

The water cannons can be operated in a duty-standby arrangement to minimise lost time during cannon services and relocations.

Hard barricades are installed to prevent access to the water jet during operation. Cannons are operated by remote control to remove operators from the high pressure energy source.

High production rate minimises unit cost – a single water water cannon is able to mine from 50 to 500t/h depending on the application.
