Mining Process

Mining Applications


Leachate Treatment

Reduce your liquid waste hauling and disposal costs with efficient solids dewatering processes.

  • Eliminate tailing pond overflow
  • Consistently meet the strictest environmental discharge limits
  •  Automatically reprocess compliant water, ensuring only compliant water is discharged

Heavy Metals Removal

Kontek creates self-protected and fitted water treatment processes that consistently produce compliant water. This allows you to:

  • Meet strict environmental regulations on effluent discharge
  • Remove heavy metals from wastewater streams with reliable equipment

Precious Metal Recovery

Fine-tuned, turnkey ion exchange systems let you target and recover specific precious metals.

  • Target and recover specific ions with ion exchange processes
  •  Reduce operating and maintenance costs with fail-safe features and automated controls

VeriKon On site Pilot testing
We validate your system design by measuring a complete range of process variable



  • Prevent pond overflows
  • Meet Discharge Limits
  • Safely release treated leachate water to the natural environment

Popular Mining Technologies


Mining Linkon diagrama new

Remote unit monitoring  allows our team to provide you with real-time support  when you need it. For updates, alarms, servicing and trouble- shooting, LinKon offers a cost-effective alternative to on-site field service as well LinKon provides a proactive and preventative service model versus a reactive one.


Mining Rekon and Pilot

ReKon Ion Exchange is a reliable and cost-effective method of removing dissolved heavy metals and salts from wastewater and producing high quality deionized water for recycling. Some of the applications: raw water purification, softening and deionization; wastewater treatment, wastewater recovery and recycling; polishing and targeted ion recovery.

Filter Press

Mining Filter Press

Quickly transform your liquid discharge into a solid form that passes the slump test. Presses consistently transform aqueous solution containing 2 to 5% total suspended solids  (TSS) to solid sludge cakes containing less than 65% moisture for easy disposal. Paired with a sludge dryer, your filter press is an important step in achieving Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD).


Mining RO System

Reverse Osmosis Purification removes 99% of contaminants. Designed for efficiency, Kontek’s Reverse Osmosis systems recover up to 85% of the raw city or recovered process feed water by re-circulating the reject water portion back a second pass for retreatment.


Mining Smart Logic

SmartLogic’s intuitive design protects your water quality, safeguards your parts and conserves chemicals – all while minimizing labour requirements. Sophisticated, yet user friendly HMIs enable you to quickly fine-tune parameters  with precision, view analytics and respond to alarms.

Conventional Treatment

Mining Conventional System
Our conventional wastewater treatment systems use chemical precipitation to consistently remove contaminants. Efficiently treat your wastewater prior to re-use or safe environmental discharge with durable and long-lasting automated systems.
