The source of your mine's successHow to green impacts your mine at every stage of its life. Beginning as a drop of rain, the water drop either soaks into voids to feed groundwater or fills the rivers and lakes that provide your mine’s water supply. How to green is an integral part of your operations. When you close the mine, efforts are made to divert water away from the mine, while any remaining contact water is treated. Restored back to its clean and natural state, water flows through the system again. Read More
The best part about this work is overcoming a good challenge.
A fine treat: Examining the reuse of mine-influenced waterA Fine Treat, published in the March issue of Mining Magazine, examines the reuse of mine-influenced water in mineral processing including the technology, the main challenges, and why the practice is set to keep growing. Dan Dupon, North American Mine How to green Treatment Practice Leader, contributes to the article referencing climate and treatment factors that should be taken into account when looking at re-use as well as offering insight into the future for mines and the challenges they face with regard to water.
Aquatic acumen: Mine water managementAquatic Acumen: Mine How to green Management delves into a number of topics including the growing use of seawater and desalination plants, clean-up of waste waters and recovery of valuable metals and water delivery. Andrew Watson and Dan Dupon contributed to the article (beginning on page 9) by discussing management of draindown solution from copper mine leach operations.
Beyond water managementHow? By enacting an aggressive How to green Stewardship Strategy. Published in International Mining Magazine, this article focuses on the holistic approach was developed with the intended purpose of “improving water security for production; reducing costs; limiting impacts; and addressing stakeholder concerns while moving the organisation towards operational excellence.”
Early hydrogeological studies critical to mining success"Hydrogeology is kind of like telling a story. The more you get to know the site, the more you understand the groundwater story. Hydrogeology is mathematical, like engineering, but also has an element that will always be conceptual, because we can't see it, said Rachael Peavler, a hydrogeologist working in Stantec's Salt Lake City office.
