Micronised Mineral Solutions was awarded Australian Patent 2013209309 for "Method and Apparatus for Acidic Surface Water Treatment" (Micro Reactor Technology) in 2018
pH Management & Control – An Informed Economic Innovation
Micronised Mineral Solutions was awarded Australian Patent 2013209309 for "Method and Apparatus for Acidic Surface Water Treatment" (Micro Reactor Technology) in 2018 and is continuing the patent development of its locally developed reagent "Enviro Catalyst". The innovative in-situ acid mine water treatment process is an informed economic innovation for decontamination of acid mine water containing high levels of dissolved metals stored on active and legacy mine sites. When compared to the common treatment options used on mine sites, the improvement in water quality and subsequent reduction in toxicity after using the MMS Reagent has proven favourably in price and detoxification outcomes.
Using our patent technology and locally developed reagent, MMS successfully completed decontamination at Vista Gold Australia’s Mt Todd mine water pit of 10.3 billion litres of acidic water. The body of water has transformed from a level of high toxicity to aquatic life to one where 99.8% of metals have been removed. The local flora and fauna recovery including the native frog population were evident post treatment.
