Engineered Solutions that are SAFER. SMARTER. SIMPLER.

Open Pit Mining Dust Suppression

Soil & Dust Solutions was retained to provide dust control solutions for an open-pit mining operation in Botswana.  The objectives were to improve visibility, road safety, and production efficiency. After proper preparation of the area which only entailed a sweeping of the surface, A water truck was used to apply a surface application of Durasolution to the road surface. This proved to be an effective dust suppression treatment which was also effective on fugitive dust. This treatment negated the need for water for dust suppression and provided a much safer driving environment than previous methods and products used by the mine.
