Water management for copper mining


Effective water management is critical in any mining operation, sofinding innovative mine dewatering and fluid transfer applications is essential for today’s mineral extraction processes. Petar Ostojic discusses how custom engineered barge pump systems help accomplish this task in two copper mining companies

Centrifugal pumps are widely usedin the global mining industry, from mine dewatering to hydro-metallurgy extraction processes, and are considered the heart of any mining operation. Several of the most respected engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) companies are developing a record number of projects for the world’s biggest mining companies that are currently operating in Chile, Peru and the rest of Latin America. Most of these projects are mainly based on the extensive use of centrifugal pumps…
