Improved tailings stability
Simply and effectively dewater tailings in line with GISTM best-practice tailings management guidelines.
Dewatered and well-consolidated tailings are safer and more stable, eliminating the risk of liquefaction and catastrophic mudslides in the event of a TSF failure.
Future-ready water management
Tailings water recovery of 75% achieved so far.
Hydraulic dewatered stacking lowers fresh water draw and/or desalination requirements, enhancing water stewardship in a water-scarce region.
Simplified and faster closure
Take a progressive approach to closure and expedite final hand-over.
Risk of re-saturation and water contamination is controlled, even after closure, while long-term subsidence is likely lower as HDS tailings consolidate quickly, as they are deposited.
