Gold Mine Wastewater Treatment Plant, Australia

Membrane Free Desalination

Clean TeQ Water provided 2MLD DESALX® plant removing arsenic, antimony, hardness and sulphate, producing water suitable for aquifer reinjection.


Clean TeQ water was engaged to provide a water treatment solution for an existing gold mining operation located in Victoria, Australia. Clean TeQ performed site piloting before moving on to the design, supply and commissioning of the full scale water treatment plant.

The plant removes arsenic and antimony in a precipitation step, before DESALX® removes calcium, magnesium, iron, and sulphate from the water. The treated water is suitable for aquifer re-injection, or water can proceed to RO for polishing and use as process water.

Water recovery is in excess of 90% and the system is fully automated and performs consistently across variable flowrates (from 20 to 80 m3/h).
