Overflowing Sediment Pond at a Gold Mine
- Industry: Mining
- Product: Jetting Dredge
- Location: Western Australia
The plastic lined pond had overfilled with fine sediments from the underground drilling and mining activity.
The Jetting Dredge was modified to have a high pressure jetting bar attached to the front of the float. This enabled the sediment to be agitated and a trench cut through the sediment with progressive dredging from deeper water to the shallower region near the inlet zone.
