Tailings Dam Construction This is where Fraser Alexander had its origins in 1912. We have grown our influence in this part of the mining value chain substantially since then to become the largest provider of outsourced residue management solutions international, and offer world class residue management solutions to a variety of mining customers, locally and abroad. We have designed and constructed many tailings dams, and operate and manage approximately 170 of these on an outsourced basis. As the global price of commodities has risen, we have extended our services to recover low grade minerals found in old tailings, using our hydraulic re-mining techniques and slurry pumping capabilities to remove and transport repulped tailings to our customers’ processing plants. Almost 100 million tons of tailings is re-mined by us annually. We manage 60 water and waste water plants for the mining and industrial industry. Mines also generate a variety of organic waste material. We are able to support our customers with the recycling of this into useful compost and mulch, used both for mine rehabilitation and for sale. Our extensive range of scientifically-based environmental management services range from tailings dams and dump rehabilitation, to supporting our customers with mine closure solutions and environmental monitoring services. Our experience in residue management covers a wide range of minerals including quartzitic gold, greenstone gold, platinum, kimberlite, iron, magnetite, copper, ash, coal, phosphate, gypsum, heavy mineral sands, andalusite, chrome, ferro-chrome, zinc and nickel. To maintain our position as market leaders we focus on developing numerous R& D projects focussed on adding value to our clients by continually searching for cost effective solutions to their problems. We have a well developed new business development team that assists clients with turnkey projects ranging from Design, Construct and operation of tailings dams, environmental and water treatment solutions, to more fully integrated total hydraulic remining solutions through delivery of an integrated seamless solution with other group divisions. The Tailings division also operates internationally in Chile, Australia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Swaziland, Namibia, Ghana, Mali and the Ivory Coast. Through our hydraulic re-mining engineering workshops we offer clients a turn-key cost effective hydraulic remining solution internationally designing, constructing, installing and operating total slurry and high pressure pumping systems.
