Mining & Frac

The mining industry requires treatment tanks which must resist the highly abrasive nature of the contents and the corrosive environment of mining processes. The bolted nature of the tanks allows them to be built very quickly when compared to welded structures. Downtime due to short tank life and corrosion is not an option. It also allows the existing tanks to be unbolted and moved on to new locations when required, significantly increasing asset value. Applications which can include mines for gold, silver, coal, copper, diamonds, iron ore, cobalt, nickel, platinum, potash, rare earth metals, uranium, zinc and many other minerals. Properly processing mining fluids and slurry is critical to the profitability and efficiency of any mining operation. Mining water use is water used for the extraction of minerals that may be in the form of solids, such as coal, iron, sand, and gravel; liquids, such as crude petroleum; and gases, such as natural gas. The category includes quarrying, milling of mined materials, injection of water for secondary oil recovery or for unconventional oil and gas recovery (such as hydraulic fracturing), and other operations associated with mining activities. With several applications in the mining industry, we manufacture our tanks to meet and exceed the American Water Works Association (AWWA D-103) Standards that are recognized internationally for these mining operational needs:

  • Spill prevention
  • Secondary containment
  • Firewater
  • Groundwater protection
  • Potable water supply
  • Stormwater containment
  • Storing minerals, sand, stone, and other aggregates
  • Fluid storage
