Abstract [en]

The main objective of the NordMin WASCIOUS project was to develop a technology concept for water conscious mining, where innovative water and tailings treatment technologies provide good-quality water for recycling and discharge and enable safe disposal or utilization of tailings. The work included a survey on current practices and requirements in Nordic mines and laboratory and pilot scale development of several technologies. Computational simulations of water treatment and recycling practices were performed for a feasibility study of some technology alternatives and technologies for dewatering of tailings were evaluated. As an important outcome of the project, a future Nordic research platform was established related to environmental issues in mining for the Nordic region, enabling exchange of ideas and collaboration in future project calls, and facilitating ideas for future projects.
