The initial prototypes were developed and tested at Mascot Mine (currently owned by Barrick Gold) in 1999, in Hedley BC, Canada. The goal of the project was to harness and dramatically accelerate the natural process of evaporation, while sequestering any and all contaminants from the pond, allowing the site to undergo bioremediation, and return to it’s natural state.
The Proof is in the Pond
Twenty years ago, the wind and water engineering team at Slimline Manufacturing developed the EcoMister 1.0, the first highly effective portable Evaporator technology for the global mining industry. Since then, we have installed over 600 Evaporator Units on sites around the globe.
