Case Study: Peru Gold Mine
Industrial Water Treatment – Mining | Latin America: Peru
In 2015, a gold mining plant in Peru at 3,000 meters of altitude sought to protect its existing reverse osmosis (RO) unit from contaminated leachate water. An operator found that the plant’s conventional treatment could not provide a stable and high-quality water stream for mining production. The plant required a quick, reliable wastewater solution to meet peak demand in the summer months, while also treating the mine leachate to prevent the existing RO membranes from collapsing or releasing contaminated water into the environment. Pall Water’s Aria FAST containerized mobile membrane system was selected due to its deployment speed and ability to meet filtration regulations.

A Peruvian mine quickly needed stable, high-quality water treatment to meet peak demand and prevent RO membrane fouling. The ideal solution would have a small footprint and be able to operate in challenging geographies.
Pall Water’s Aria FAST membrane system was chosen to treat mine leachate, guarantee the availability of a quality water source, and increase overall capacity. Furthermore, Aria FAST’s modular, self-contained form removed the need for any new buildings or infrastructure.
