What are the biggest challenges for green field/ in and near mine exploration currently and how to solve them? Which highly innovative and cost-effective, non-invasive technologies and services are provided by German companies?
Those and many other questions have been discussed during various sessions and panel discussions at the “German Day” in Toronto at March, 6th 2018. Topics were the challenging adaptation of mining and process models, social license to operate, sustainable exploration practices and multi-element mining to reduce tailings.
Our geologist Micha Zauner represented UIT during the panel discussion about "German Technology to improve the bottom line in the project development". Topics such as 3D modelling of ore deposits and interpretation of exploration data were presented. Another game changing development is UIT´s neutron borehole logging tool “oreLOG” to precisely investigate the underground with integrated lithological and mineralogical logging interpretation.
We are looking forward to next year’s PDAC and new challenging questions.
Let´s meet at the FILTECH 2018 in Colonia, Hall 11.1, Stand K20
Our main topics on Filtech:
Mercury removal (Hg) in industrial waste water and condensate
Sulphate reduction (SO4) in the treatment plant outflow
Sulphuric acid recovery (H2SO4)
Looking forward to discuss with you in person!
other topics (industrial waste water):
meet limit values
modernization / Expansion of waste water treatment plants
Further fields of activity:
Between 2013 and 2017, the UIT installed a measurement system of 50 measuring points around the building site of the large Autobahn-Project “Lückenschluss A661-A66 – Kreuzungsbauwerk am Autobahndreieck Erlenbruch” close to Frankfurt. With the installation of remote transmitting data loggers, mostly in groundwater measuring points, an independent groundwater monitoring can be realized with full area coverage. Data can be viewed by the client and the involved engineers via our web service SENSOweb.
Amt für Straßen und Verkehrswesen Frankfurt
For the Project:
Hessen Mobil - A 66 Riederwaldtunnel / A 661 Ostumgehung Frankfurt
Measurement system monitoring:
During the beginning of the project 2013, the first measurement points were equipped with data loggers. In 2017, the monitoring network was expanded with 45 additional measuring points. The data loggers incl. remote transmission are mostly used in
- Groundwater surveillance, often times under floor measuring points and
- Surface water surveillance
Additionally, weather stations were equipped.
All measurement points are organized by the web-service SENSOweb:
- Hourly monitoring and logging of measured data
- Daily remote transmission to the web-platform SENSOweb
- Daily status updates for the project managers
- Download option of all data for the engineers in charge
UIT is collaborating with Prolific Mining in Utah/USA since early 2016. Main objective of the current project in the Bromide Basin is the development of an economic polymetallic mine. The prospect bears the potential of being a new Bingham Canyon deposit, another giant porphyry copper mine. The current metallurgical test work focuses on the epithermal zone of the deposit, mainly bearing Cu, Au and Ag vein mineralization. The 2017 test program resulted in extraordinarily good recoveries and concentrate grades for the payable elements. UIT and partners were able to produce a saleable Cu concentrate of 24 wt% Cu by sulphide flotation. A 90% recovery of Au from the gravity concentrate by iodine-iodide was already reached without any optimization and is currently further investigated.
The 2018 test work will focus on core samples from deep drilling within the porphyry zone in order to develop an adequate process flow diagram for the future mill. Aside the standard payable element suite of Cu, Au and Ag, other high-revenue elements will also be considered as by-products.
There is no time better fitting to express our appreciation for the excellent cooperation. The UIT-Team would like to wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a successful and Happy New Year 2018.
Again we followed our tradition and made a donation to the regional humanitarian project “Lichtblick” recently,
helping people in trouble, where other aid fails.
UIT is represented from 4 – 7 March 2018 in Toronto, Canada - PDAC 2018
Main topics in the field of Mineral Resources:
- 3D Geological and Hydrological Modeling
- In-situ Mining and Column Leach Test Facility
- oreLOG (Borehole Logging Tool)
UIT GmbH Dresden is exhibiting again this year at the BIOGAS Convention & Trade Fair in Nuremberg. You will find us in Hall 10 / booth E43 from 12th to 14th December 2017, where we will be happy to explain our new and further developments of our biogas test plants. We are looking forward to your visit.
The container based BioXtractor - the next generation of pilot plants using biotechnology - has been delivered to our customer BRAIN AG after a design and production period of four months. In this mobile container plant hightech and precious metals can be extracted from supposed waste, such as computer boards or metallurgical slags. Our customer has brought the advantages of the mobile pilot plant to the point.
On 17 August 2017 the regional TV station “Hessenschau” titled under "Gold from scrap" and Hessian broadcasting under "Ashes to Gold".
A groundwater monitoring network with public platform on the internet has been handed over to the Water Management Office Regensburg. The installation of the measuring network has been performed in a very short time period and included the following services:
- Construction, delivery and installation of 56 water level recorders with GPRS data transmission
- Provision of a public platform http://www.gwm-wwa-r.de/
- Graphical presentation of the measuring points on a zoomable card
- Selectable temporal display range for the respective measuring point
We were delighted to welcome the city Regensburg as one of our new customers.
We are excited to announce that our new and refreshed website is online. With the updated page, navigation has become easier, both on the PC and in the mobile version. We have also improved the structure of our content, so you will get more from a quick read. You are welcome to click and experience.
The Okavango Delta and Chobe river system belong to a cross-border nature reserve within the Southern African Development Community (SADC). The governments of Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe have taken on the task to establish an automated monitoring system for water quality parameters and water levels, and thus to improve cooperation between the competent authorities.
Based on this standardized long-term monitoring system all participating countries will get benefit from a predictive model which provides important trends on water quality and fluctuating water levels.
The challenging operational conditions in the project area require a stable working and robust measurement technology. Following a tendering procedure the responsible procurement authority has finally decided for multi-parameter probes of type MSM-S2 and data logger technology of type LogTrans6 both made by Umwelt- und Ingenieurtechnik GmbH Dresden and thereby trusts on long-term proven systems.
On May 27, 2015, many invited guests took the opportunity to be actually informed on UIT and our new hydrometallurgical test center. After an opening ceremony and official speeches, giving an overview on our activities and capabilities in the business field "Mineral Resources" they visited our hydrometallorgical test center as well as UIT's new water technology lab. We thank our guests for their participation and the active exchange of experiences.
