Tailings remediation is very much what Ascot is about. Finding a commercial mechanism to impact communities with a lasting benefit. In so many areas around the world there are significantly polluting tailings sites which are being overlooked as mining assets.
Often, this is due to the limited knowledge of how to process or utilise these assets in a commercially viable manner.
Our specialisation in mineral separation comes into its own with tailings. We are able to perform a series of tests and analyses which will help you understand the particular type of material you have and determine its commercial value.
By taking into consideration the various complexities of tailings remediation, often small scale assets, fine grained material (ruling out some forms of processing), and the overall economic value, we can design a process that is best-fit.
Best-fit can mean a trade off between the capital investment against recovery rate with a view to utilising additional methods, such as phyto-remediation to complete an environmental rehabilitation of a site.
Our aim has to be to extract commercial value but, mindful that once we have, it is unlikely that the material will ever be treated again so we must set in place practises and methods that will have a long term environmental impact, not only reducing such things as heavy metals leaching into the soil but also to mitigate airborne dust particles.
