Overflowing Sediment Pond at a Gold Mine

  • Industry: Mining
  • Product: Jetting Dredge
  • Location: Western Australia

Project Brief

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.
