KSM Project’s Adopted Selenium Removal Technology Receives US Patent

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.
