During the webinar, Michael Wheatland, a chemical engineer with over 15 years experience in the minerals industry demonstrates how gold, copper, coal and other mines around Australia are using ACTI-Mag to neutralise process or waste water to achieve better costs, safer process and a better environmental outcome.

The water cycle in Australia with our droughts and downpours is always a challenge for mine sites. We understand the challenges, as we own our own Mine site in South Australia.

ACTI-Mag for wastewater

ACTI-Mag is a concentrated and stabilised suspension of magnesium hydroxide also known as milk of magnesia, an inorganic compound with the chemical formula Mg(OH)2. Highly fluid, ACTI-Mag has proven to flow easily in most dosing systems.

With a higher neutralising value per kilo when compared with caustic whilst being significantly safer to handle than other traditional alkalis, making it a very safe and cost competitive option.
