AWMA have been involved in numerous projects in Tasmania this year, including working with Irrigation Tasmania’s Mining and Industrial Services sector for West Coast Mines. AWMA Segmented Stopboards have been installed within the dam walls of the mine’s ‘polishing ponds’.
The stopboards will be manually operated to control the level of the water in each section, divert water to another section, bypass a section or make the water flow all the way round. Decant water comes in from the tails dam, and the ‘circuit’ allows the water to settle before being discharged from the dam. During maintenance and high inflows, operators need to control the flows manually. AWMA’s multiple segments allow flows to be easily managed in 100mm high increments.
The Google map pictured, shows the actual location of the stop boards in the polishing ponds dam wall. Unaided, water flows in at the bottom right-hand side of the map and flows around the top and out at the bottom left-hand side.
