Specialist Water Tanks for the Mining Industry

Process Water Tanks

Pioneer Water Tanks understands just how important it is to have sufficient process water storage on your mine site, and offer a wide range of process water tank installation options from 12kL to 10ML.

Sturdy, built for purpose and aesthetically pleasing, Pioneer's range of commercial water tanks are sure to meet your needs.

Water Treatment Tanks

For water treatment tanks, Pioneer's large panel tanks make a great option thanks to their durability and strength, as well as their quality engineering allowing water to be moved between them in high volumes. These can be either open or closed tanks with a liner suited to the chemical make-up of the tank contents.


All of our wastewater tanks meet AS2304 certification for Water Storage and AS2239 & AS2382.2 in regards to galvanic (sacrificial) Anodes for Cathodic Protection.

Potable Water Tanks

Excelling in water storage for rural and domestic applications, Pioneer provides high quality potable water storage tanks for mine sites and mining residential settings. Meeting AS/NZS4020 for testing of products for use in contact with drinking water, and fitted with an antimicrobial water tank liner, Pioneer's tanks are perfect for drinking water storage.


In areas as dusty as mining sites, your Pioneer Water Tank can be fitted with a SuperSeal to make the water tank dust proof and vermin proof, ensuring that the water quality of your drinking water is as good as possible.


Pioneer Water Tanks can supply you with a water tank for potable water from our rural range, or can design one to fit your specifications if a project calls for it.

Wastewater Tanks

Pioneer offer large modular wastewater tanks for mine sites as well as other commercial settings. All of our wastewater tanks meet AS3500.1 certification for Plumbing and drainage Water services.


Whether you need multiple linked or separate tanks, or a single water storage tank, we will work with you to meet your needs. The liners of these tanks can be suited to the chemical composition of the tank contents.
