Mt Weld:Mt Weld has established internal objectives and targets in-line with the Environmental Policy to recycle more than 50,000 m3 of water per month for reuse within the flotation plant.
A target of 4.5 m3 of water per tonne of concentrate has been set for the 2018 FY period to reduce water consumption.
LAMP:The LAMP uses scheme water (city water) provided by the local water utility provider.
Onsite Lynas has two process water ponds with a capacity of 6000m3 which supply to the plant as needed at rate of approximately 400m3/hr.
A dedicated water flow meter has been installed to process the incoming city water, enabling us to precisely monitor our water consumption. Lynas has also installed a water booster pump at each area to improve on water pressure supply at the plant.
All water inside the lagoon is recycled back to the Cracking and Leaching system.
