During 2016 MPMC experienced exceedances of Total Suspended Solids and Copper at HAD03, the effluent discharge location after the water treatment plant.
The Ministry of Environment did complete a number of inspections, post non-compliance.
The actions required by the inspection are:
- Continue to source water directly from Springer Pit to the extent practicable.
- Reduce the overall volume of water being stored on site.
- Complete review of treatment potential from Springer Pit.
- Complete bench-scale testing for water treatment plant optimization for Total Cooper removal and implement optimization if feasible.
