Water Management

It has been calculated, that on average, it takes over 700 cubic meters of water to produce one tonne of gold. The mining sector is a significant water user - as well as a significant producer of wastewater. It follows that effective mine water management is an essential component of a mine's success.

Water specialists in SRK have the experience and expertise to evaluate water issues and associated risks within the context of the wider development objectives of a mining project. This might compromise an integrated hydrogeological, geotechnical and structural geology study to predict mine water inflows, for example, or evaluating water quality and water supply aspects of an environmental and social impact assessment study.

Effective mine water mangement involves fully assessing such issues and delivering solutions which are practical, appropriate and cost effective. SRK delivers on all counts, effectively and knowledgeably, to add value to your project and help minimise your risks.
