Mine & Mill Water


Mine & Mill Water

ECOTHOR® is a unique, patented electrolysis process for the safe, effective and affordable removal of various toxic chemicals from mine water contaminated by normal blasting operations and from mill water contaminated by typical mineral processing. The ECOTHOR® reactor can be operated in a bank of multiple reactors to treat wastewater discharge flows in the thousands of m3 per day. ECOTHOR® can operate in three different modes: electro-coagulation, electro-disinfection and electro-oxidation to target removal of contaminants including:

  • Ammonia nitrogen
  • Suspended solids
  • Metals (ex. Zn, Fe, Cu, Ni, Se, As, etc.)
  • Cyanides, Thiocyanates, etc.
  • Long-chain hydrocarbons
  • Phosphorus
  • Pathogens/bacteria (ex. membrane fouling)
  • And more…

The E2metrix advantages

  • Multiple contaminants removed simultaneously (high efficiency)
  • Competitive CAPEX, low cost of ownership
  • Service contract available
  • Fully automated with remote operation on multiple platforms
  • Simple-to-operate and easy-to-maintain
  • On/Off Capabilities vs biological processes
  • Compact & modular – small footprint – containers available
  • Complete leachate treatment train available – Containerized as well
  • No moving parts.

Removal Efficiencies – Mining
