EKS-DT reduces the demand on fresh water sources by increasing the water available for reuse and decreases the disturbed land footprint from tailings handling, storage, and disposal.

The EKS-DT process is clearly environmentally superior to current technologies on all counts:

  • Less fugitive GHG emissions
  • The process can be operated by renewables (i.e. no GHG emissions)
  • Immediate progressive reclamation of tailings
  • Immediate elimination of legacy tailings inventory
  • No EPLs (End-pit Lakes)
  • Less water use
