    The mining industry continues to play a vital role in the development of natural resources.  Assisting the industry with its mining treatment needs is a role that Tonka Water has played since the early 1980’s, providing process solutions for discharge compliance to USEPA standards in northern Minnesota, as well as contaminant removal systems and waste treatment for large industrial projects throughout the United States.

    With a wide variety of equipment solutions, Tonka Water can assist the mining industry to increase future productivity while complying with all environmental regulations.  Our treatment solutions include metal removal and recovery; contaminant treatment and removal, acid mine waste treatment, discharge treatment or reuse applications and potable water production. 

    Ravi Shankar, Tonka Water’s mining representative in Canada, believes the mining industry will be an ever-increasing market for water treatment processes as more complex and demanding mining operations develop.
