We specialise in mine water management and treatment all around the world
An environmental consulting company
Envirobay Inc is an environmental consulting company specialising in mine water management and treatment. Water treatment expertise for mining and metallurgical effluents include the treatment of acids and the removal of metals, metalloids, total suspended solids, total dissolved solids (including sulphate), and nitrogen compounds.
A mine site typically contains a complex water system, particularly when a concentrator is included.
Acid mine drainage (AMD) or Acid Rock Drainage (ARD) is a common problem when mining sulphide ores.
Total dissolved solids (TDS) and particularly high sulphate concentrations are an on-going challenge for the mining industry.
Arsenic (As), molybdenum (Mo), antimony (Sn), and selenium (Se), are metalloid contaminants found at some mine sites that must be treated to meet strict environmental standards.
Cyanide concentrations can be problematic particularly for gold mining operations.
In exploration, construction, and some mines (particularly iron mining) the main challenge is removal of total suspended solids from surface water.
