Brazil has huge reserves of iron-ore, gold, bauxite, nickel, manganese and niobium. With over 200 active mines and exports amounted to over USD 150 billion mining in Brazil is a globally significant industry. Within Brazil, Minas Gerais and the state of Pará account for 87% of this mining activity.
Recent catastrophic failures in associated tailings dams have highlighted the critical need for innovative and cost-effective technologies that can recover residual processing water from the tailings coupled with improvements in tailings density and strength. Remaining with conventional technology or trying to adopt cost-prohibitive technologies is not an option. Collectively, the mining industry, the regulators and the people of Brazil demand a new approach.
