SSR Mining – Dust Collection System Upgrades


SSR Mining is a global mining company that is focused on the exploration, development, and operation of precious metal properties. The company has a diversified asset portfolio including gold, silver, and copper mines located in North and South America. Their commitment to responsible mining practices and sustainability is a corporate value that overlaps well with Enginuity. Ensuring that its operations have a positive impact on the environment and society is something that SSR Mining feels strongly about and was prioritized by the Enginuity team when navigating the various project phases.

A new dust collection system was required to mitigate the large number of air borne particulates in the facility caused by the rock crushers. Enginuity conducted a study evaluating and troubleshooting deficiencies and potential upgrades which led to the concept design of multiple replacement dust collection system options including an overall project cost estimation. Enginuity’s detailed study allowed SSR the confidence to ensure a safe and cost-effective solution was implemented.
