DRA Water was contracted by Umsimbithi Mining (Glencore Coal JV) to provide holistic water treatment solution for their operation at Wonderfontein Colliery.  With extensive experience in mine water reclamation, DRA has constructed a 3 ML/D mine water treatment plant comprising of a 2-stage membrane process with inter-stage softening.
