Case Study: Bralorne Gold Mine, Canada
Industrial Water Treatment – Mining | North America: British Columbia, Canada
The Bralorne Gold Mine, required construction to get the mine back on-line after its purchase by Avino Silver & Gold Mines in 2014. Temporary water storage for mine drainage would not be available during construction and required a higher-capacity water treatment for the anticipated high volume flows for freshet. The mine required a faster, more affordable and reliable treatment solution than its existing media filtration. Pall Water’s Aria FAST mobile water treatment was selected because it could handle construction challenges, remove contaminants, and protect local waters.

In 2014, a high water event and tailings storage freeboard concerns meant the Bralorne Gold Mine needed to be shut down. Instability in the dam foundation was discovered during construction and temporary water treatment capable of handling challenging waters was required.
The mine’s initial media filtration system became very costly in replacing media and had a low flow capacity. To determine a more robust solution, Avino brought on engineering firm Tetra Tech, who suggested Pall Water’s Aria FAST mobile membrane treatment system to replace its underperforming media filter and to bring the mine one step closer to becoming operational and efficient.
The quick response and deployment of Pall’s fully integrated Aria FAST unit allowed the gold mine to rapidly treat excess water in order to meet stringent environmental discharge requirements and prepare the mine for production.
