Reducing our Water Requirements at Kisladag

With water being a vital resource, we are committed to recycling as much water as possible at our sites.

Completed in 2013, the Kisladag water treatment plant treats up to 5,000 m3/day of surface water from the rock dump and groundwater from the open pit. Designed as a closed-loop system, water is recycled and recirculated as part of the mine’s industrial water requirements.

In 2014, we began using the treated water in the processing phase, reducing the need to collect fresh water from wells. As much water as possible is recycled in the process, and in the dry season the additional water is used in water trucks to suppress dust at the site. Excess treated water is discharged as a final option.
