Mining companies can automate water quality testing with KETOS to track over 30+ parameters – including heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, and selenium – to ensure water used or returned to the environment meets regulatory compliance requirements.
Mining companies typically have high regulator standards to meet in terms of water remediation. However, requirements aren’t standardized and may vary from country to country, state to state, or region to region.
Complying with regulations requires operators to monitor various parameters and contaminants. Testing takes time, capital, and a large amount of manual labor. Often, mines must take manual samples and send them to third-party labs for testing and analysis. However, dealing with issues is delayed when water sampling is inconsistent.
A system that can bridge that gap and allow on-site sampling ensures water testing at regular intervals with results at an operator’s fingertips in minutes – not days.
With KETOS, mining companies get:
Manual testing is no longer required when mining companies leverage KETOS. And with a cloud-enabled dashboard, water operators can receive and review their readings in real-time, take advantage of predictive/prescriptive analytics to see around corners, and have reporting available for regulatory bodies and oversight boards.
