About Lumwana copper mine
Commissioned/installed date: 2013
This large MBR sewage treatment project was prompted by the copper mine’s planned expansion, which included the addition of a new conveyor to transport ore to a nearby crusher. The result would be additional mine tailings at the site.
With the current tailings pond approaching capacity, and the existing conventional wastewater treatment plant directly in the expansion zone, the mine operator sought a large scale treatment system to address the mine’s growth − and the 8,000 person community supporting the project.
