- Operational safety – remotely controlled systems so no personnel in the dams
- Lower cost per tonne, compared to truck and shovel
- Minimal downtime and lower risk, due to automatic pump control system
- Low carbon footprint – completely electrified slurrification unit
Tailings with a dry surface can be re-handled using conventional mining equipment, such as trucks and excavators. However, climate change and the need for environmentally responsible, cost-effective, high-production and efficient methods to transport material place great demands on the mining industry.
In order to overcome these challenges, IHC has developed several slurrification options to transport tailings over short and long distances.
