Case Study: Nevada Mine
Industrial Water Treatment – Mining | North America: Nevada, USA
A mine in remote Nevada experienced a pit flood resulting from groundwater recharge. Over 40 million gallons of water flooded the open pit, bringing mine operations to a halt. The groundwater, when introduced to the pit, was then contaminated with manganese (Mn), heavy metals, and sulfides.
The contaminated water needed treatment for use in agricultural irrigation. Furthermore, the mine needed treatment immediately, as winter was approaching, and the site would not be accessible during this time. An immediate solution was needed to resume operations at the mine. Pall Water’s Aria FAST containerized water treatment system offered robust, reliable treatment and was producing high-quality water within 30 days.

- Environmental Compliance: Water treated with the Aria FAST system met environmental discharge limits
- Quick Response Time: Fast mobile asset deployment
- Zero capital investment required
- Fast Treatment: Contaminated water treated in two months, allowing the Baraite mine to resume operations
- Short-Term Solution: Rental unit available to meet short-term needs
- Emergency Water Treatment
After experiencing a pit flood, the mine needed fast treatment to meet environmental discharge limits before the mine was closed for the winter season.
Pall Water’s membrane filtration system was selected because it offered the most robust and reliable treatment when metals coagulation was implemented upstream to remove the difficult solids. The entire solution was deployed and providing treated water within 30 days.
The Aria FAST system enabled the mine pit water to be treated and removed in less than two months. The system operated continuously and allowed monitoring of water quality to ensure compliance with downstream water treatment requirements. The treated pit water was used for irrigation in the local farming community adjacent to the mine site.
