Kozar Engineering Inc. worked with Goldcorp to develop an U/G Water Recycling System.
The underground water recycle project was initiated by Musselwhite Mine to reduce the total amount of fresh water being delivered from surface infrastructure to the underground workings. The concept was to reduce power consumption by reducing the operation of dewatering pumps.
Kozar Engineering provided detailed mechanical, electrical and controls engineering to put into service a complete working system. The water recycle project consisted of; mud settling equipment, ultraviolet disinfection, pumping & piping and a control system to tie the recycle water into the existing U/G process water system. TSS & UVT properties are constantly monitored by mine operations.
