Clearflow has been working closely with mining companies in Canada since 2005 to deliver a complete solution to solve mining’s toughest in situ site water management and treatment issues. This advanced, holistic process successfully addresses the challenges facing mining companies today:

  • Site water management and concept design
  • Scale, volume and flow rates
  • Lack of soil stabilization and erosion control
  • Regulatory pressure increasing — provincially and federally

Site Water Management and Concept Design

  • A complete site analysis and design parameters discussed with client and engineering consultants to ensure optimum sediment control to meet regulatory requirements
  • Site specificity – Expertise to tailor its product application and site design
  • Proprietary Water Lynx products with effectiveness, integrated with updated concept designs, allow for early dosing rather than end-point dosing
  • Establishing buffer zones helps handle large scale volume and flow rates
  • Work closely with regulators and the client to help meet release guidelines

Erosion Control

Mining activities constantly expose new surfaces to increased erosion potential. Clearflow identifies and addresses all contributing factors and applies Soil Lynx as a source control method in order to mitigate sediment loading in on-site water. Treated jute erosion control blankets further prevent surface erosion. Areas where our erosion control products can be used are:

  • Steep slopes
  • Surface run-off
  • Berms
  • Haul roads
  • Sklare lines
  • Channels
  • Pond
  • Sumps and catchments

Dust Control

Clearflow’s dust control program has been proven to reduce road watering by up to 90%. Dust is not only a contributing factor to additional sediment loading over time, but can pose a health and safety risks as well. Our dust mitigation products are ideal on:

  • Haul roads
  • Open sites

Water Treatment

Clearflow’s water treatment systems are designed specifically for industries such as mining. We can deal with the high sediment loads, flow volumes, velocities, cold water temperatures and ultra fine content that is associated with this industry. Our products are designed to be highly efficient at removing these forms of TSS. We work within your existing infrastructure to develop a solution to fit your needs. Some of the areas our water treatment systems can be used include:

  • Tailings ponds
  • Lagoons
  • Ditches
  • Canals
  • Point source discharges
