Construction of tailings pipeline to tailings pond ‘Erma River’
The project is being implemented in connection with the measures taken to improve the functioning of the tailings pond. After ore flotation, the waste material (tailings slurry) is mixed with the water and, by means of hydrotransport carried out by a pumping station, is poured into the tailings pond. The purpose is to make better use of the capacity of the tailings pondby regulated filling of unfilled volumes obtained along the line from the Flotation Works to the Water Mirror.
The other main purpose is to solve an environmental problem by pipeline discharge of the waste to the Water Mirror of the tailings pond without allowing it to pass through urbanized areas.
The route length is 4,9km,which is mainly located on the road to the village of Erma. The project value is about BGN 1,5million.
