9:00 AM WORKSHOP A: Operations: Water Supply and Integrated Water Management for Today’s Mining Projects

Mr. Jerry Rowe , Global Director of Water Resource Management, Hatch Water

Mr. Hu Fleming , Global Director of the Water Business Unit, Hatch Water

Mr. Mark Mullett , Technical Lead for the Process Separations Group, Hatch Water

Mr. Mohammed Ali , Regional Director - Environment/Sustainability/CSR, Hatch Water

Mr. Andrew Bodley , Senior Geotechnical Engineer, Hatch Water

Mr. Jacob Croall , Environmental Process Development Scientist - Malozemoff Technical Facility, Newmont Mining

The supply and management of water is taking on a new importance. Many mining operations today need more water because of greater production from lower grade resources as well as an increase in mining development in areas with limited sources of water supply and water infrastructure. Furthermore, environmental regulations and social impact assessments require mining companies to rethink the design of their operations in order to address problems such as acid rock drainage and other issues which impact the environment and the community. Fortunately, new technologies and better water management practices can help mining companies effectively manage their operations’ water supply.

What you will learn:

  • The increasing importance of water in modern mining operations
  • The business, economic, social and environmental drivers affecting water use and management
  • Options for water supplies from surface water, groundwater and seawater
  • Improved practices for tailings water management and resource recovery
  • Water treatment and re-use options for mine process waters and effluents
  • How to lower demand and/or increase supply through good integrated mine water management practices
  • What technologies are on the horizon that could improve water supply and management

How you will benefit:

  • What other mines and operators are doing to deal with water supply and management issues
  • What current methods and technologies are being successfully applied
  • How investing in an integrated approach to water management can result in cost savings and a better ROI
  • What you can do to deal with the changing public perceptions and requirements regarding sustainable water management

Feasibility and Hydro-geologic studies are essential to understanding water levels, water flow and their potential effects upon operations and the environment.  Comprehending those aspects are always challenging; however without them operations could potentially be doomed to increased erosion and ground water depletion. How do you predict dewatering requirements and integrate the results of water levels in mine operations and rock stability; for both open-pit and underground operations?  

What you will learn:

  • Explore best- practices in the hydro-geological space
  • Evaluate dewatering requirements
  • The valuation of water resources and water rights

How you will benefit:

  • Minimize costs associated with selecting and managing your provider
  • Become an exemplary environmental steward
  • Acquire information relevant to mine-closure from the earliest planning stages
