Mine Water Management
Our mining consultants offer knowledgable mine water management services which come from our combined hands-on experience with mine services like mine operations, closures and various research projects.
Our mine experts have the experience and skills to asses water conditions in the catchments through a range of climate and ground types. Without a skilled team of eyes overseeing a mine project or development, you can face many threats within local water conditions. Just as you would conduct mining feasibility studies to determine if the mineral can be mined economically at a proposed mine site, water management is an ongoing challenge which requires necessary due diligence before but also during mine development for mines throughout NZ. And it involves analysis, planning and collaboration to achieve an adequate and environmentally friendly system. This system should sustain through the life of the mine and many years afterwards.
