Watch our ACTI-Mag Webinar Series

Mine and mineral processing water neutralisation and metal precipitation using ACTI-Mag

Michael Wheatland \ September 2, 2020

Now that you are thoroughly sick and tired of online meetings, an invitation to another webinar is the last thing on your mind.

But imagine if that one webinar saved you thousands in chemical costs or helped avoid a nastic caustic burn at your site?

Calix has created just that, an alternative to Caustic soda and lime that can cut your chemical costs and is safe enough to swim in (floaties recommended).

ACTI-Mag is an Ultra High Surface Area Magnesium based product that can replace regular alkali in most processes where acid neutralisation or heavy metal precipitation is required.

During the webinar, Michael Wheatland, a chemical engineer with over 15 years experience in the minerals industry demonstrates how gold, copper, coal and other mines around Australia are using ACTI-Mag to neutralise process or waste water to achieve better costs, safer process and a better environmental outcome.

The water cycle in Australia with our droughts and downpours is always a challenge for mine sites. We understand the challenges, as we own our own Mine site in South Australia.

ACTI-Mag for wastewater

ACTI-Mag is a concentrated and stabilised suspension of magnesium hydroxide also known as milk of magnesia, an inorganic compound with the chemical formula Mg(OH)2. Highly fluid, ACTI-Mag has proven to flow easily in most dosing systems.

With a higher neutralising value per kilo when compared with caustic whilst being significantly safer to handle than other traditional alkalis, making it a very safe and cost competitive option.
