Saltwater Pipeline

IQE Ltd. worked with BHP Billiton Diamonds Inc. - EKATI Diamond Mine to implement a salt water delivery system capable of supplying the process plant thickening modules with additional salts. The source water originated 1.5Km underground and was pumped over a total distance of 2.0Km to the processing plant. Services provided ranged from conceptual engineering to construction and project management. Significant cost savings and thickening yield were achieved by reducing the overall thickener salt addition required during production operations.
