Commercial Netmakers is proud to design and produce quality, custom netting solutions for Australian mining operations.
Pond nets are an important part of any mining operation’s strategy for minimising their environmental impact. By using our pond nets, you can ensure that you’re in line with your industry’s best practice guidelines.
How Our Mining Nets Work
All mining operations produce potentially harmful waste products that need to be contained. The process of leaching, in particular, involves the use of processes and chemicals that must be contained. Leaching requires canals and ponds for the conduction and retention of liquid solutions pre- and post-treatment. It also requires lagoons for the final disposal of sludge or primary sedimentation. Our custom made environmental pond nets make this process safer by creating a permanent, effective barrier between these bodies of liquid and the environment.
Protecting Wildlife and Humans
Stopping harmful chemicals from entering the environment is important. Not only can they cause problems for wildlife in the area, but they can also harm humans. There can be direct harm for workers on-site or more insidious problems such as tainting water supplies and the contamination of agricultural soil.
Environmental Nets and the Cyanide Code
One of the most efficient chemicals for extracting gold from ore is cyanide. Cyanide is used in both gold and silver mining operations and it presents serious health and environmental risks.
The International Cyanide Management Code – usually called ‘The Cyanide Code’ – is a voluntary initiative that focuses on the safe management of cyanide that is produced, transported, and used for the recovery of gold and silver, and on mill tailings and leach solutions. By creating a barrier between cyanide in mining operations and the environment, permanent netting structures are an important frontline response for Cyanide Code compliance.
