AUSTRALIA’S premier hydraulic mining company, Hydraulic Mining Solutions (HMS), is combining the expertise of Fraser Alexander Tailings (South Africa) and Superior Coal (Australia). Through this joint
venture, HMS offers clients more than 100 years of experience in the hydraulic mining of a wide range of minerals.
Hydraulic mining involves using jets of water under high pressure to break up and convert material into slurry, which is then pumped to a processing plant for the recovery of saleable coal or minerals. The
technique is cost effective for many commodities when re-mining or moving tailings.
Hydraulic mining is a safer, more cost-effective alternative to dredging and can be implemented around existing physical structures.
