Globally, EDE dredges sand & gravel, salt, and other industrial materials – especially when deep digging depth is required. More often than not, mining with a dredge is the most efficient way to obtain materials consistently.
Whether it be sand, gravel or hard salt deposits, there is an EDE dredge that is the proper size for your mine. It is very common for mining companies to consult with EDE on new projects from the feasibility stage through the installation of the dredge system.

EDE offers our customers the most innovative and economically affordable mineral processing solutions for all of your mining project requirements.
Whether it is a sand and gravel, or hard salt deposit mining project we can design and build a dredge that is suited for your specific mining project.
Mining with a dredge is the most efficient way to obtain materials consistently. That is why during the initial planning stages of a new project one of our sales consultants will meet directly with our customers to discuss their specific mining needs. Our consultants maintain constant communication with our customers throughout the process until the final stages of their dredging project are complete.
Utlizing a dredge is one of the most cost-effective means of extracting sand and gravel, franc sand, iron ore, coal fine tailings, or precious materials and other minerals.
Whether you are looking for a dredge that is specifically used for mineral processing, dredge and marine mining, deep-sea mining, or material handling we can build a dredge that will meet your expectations.
Our dredges are also used for other mining applications including:
• Settling ponds
• Metal tailings
• Coal tailing ponds
• Mine impoundment clean-up pre and post-disaster work
The recovery and use or removal of tailings, through dredging, is a critical operation to recover the capacity of the tailings ponds and keep the mine and operation running. Typical applications are in the coal, iron ore, gold, oil sands and other mining sectors.

Mine tailings are the natural byproduct of raw materials mining. As rocks and minerals are crushed and washed the effluent water carries the fine particles to settling ponds where the material is collected and eventually removed and hauled away for a secondary process or stored for long periods of time.
In many cases these byproducts commonly referred to as “fines” or “tailings” have high value (ex. gold tailings or coal fines) and can be mined again with a hydraulic dredging system and pumped to a dewatering or separation plant for reprocessing.
Dredges are used by sand producers and for cleaning up mine tailings ponds. EDE dredges are available for various depths and configurations for mining applications.
