:: BioteQ Commissions Minto Water Plant

BioteQ Environmental Technologies, a leader in the treatment of industrial waste water, has completed commissioning of the new water treatment plant at Minto mine in Yukon, Canada, owned by Minto Explorations, a subsidiary of Capstone Mining. Continuous operations will commence when the mine's water use licence amendments are approved.

This is a design-supply-operate project where BioteQ has provided an integrated package of services including process design, plant equipment and installation, commissioning services, and ongoing, fee-based water treatment operations at the site for the next three operating seasons. The operating fee includes a water treatment fee based on volume of water treated, plus fees for labour.

The design-supply-operate structure of the project has expedited the project execution, reduced implementation costs and project risk. As the operator of the plant, BioteQ provides a process guarantee that the plant performs to the design specifications.

For 2010, BioteQ's goal is to add two new plants to its operations portfolio. The Minto plant is the first of the two new plants; the second is anticipated to be in China, subject to final review and approval of the design report, which is in progress.
