As part of the BC Environmental Assessment process, Seabridge Gold was required to evaluate and adopt an effective selenium treatment technology for the KSM Project. In 2015, Seabridge Gold successfully completed a pilot plant evaluation of a new process for the removal of selenium from waters in northwest BC. This plant was constructed and operated by independent BQE Water Inc., Inc. using their Selen-IX™ treatment technology. Selen-IX™ treatment technology was chosen for application at KSM because the physico-chemical, non-biological nature of Selen- IX™ precludes effluent toxicity.
The Selen-IX™ treatment technology has now been issued a US patent further validating Seabridge Gold’s chosen approach for selenium treatment at its KSM Project.
