Figure 2 Cross-section of the Ruhr coalfield – mining activities and mine water management Post-mining mine water management At the end of 2018, when hard coal mining operations will finally be ceasing in the Ruhr coalfield, the dewatering of the carboniferous strata is no longer necessary with regard to safe working conditions for the miners.
Risk associated with management of dewatering activities and surplus mine groundwater and surface water (such as levels, volumes and pressures). Many of BHP’s ore bodies are below the natural groundwater level and to access the ore we need to pump water.
Traditional tailings management practices do not align with ever-increasing demands of mining and mineral processing companies. From environmental concerns rooted in disastrous tailings dam failures, to shrinking tailings storage facility footprints due to growing production levels, your tailings management process must be built with an infrastructure that's minded for the future.
The success or failure of a mining project is often linked to site water management, or the lack of it. Risks to a project’s success include tailings dam failures during storm events, slope failures related to elevated pore pressures, water in blast holes leading to inefficient blasting (adding costs and environmental impacts), lack of process water, and excessive closure costs.

Nov 06, 2019 Water reporting requirements depend on whether the water that is taken is 'associated' or 'non-associated'. Associated water is any underground water that you take or interfere with while (or as a result of) carrying out an authorised activity on your resource authority (e.g. mine dewatering activities).; Non-associated water is any other underground water that is taken (e.g. taken from a ...
Water is critical for every mine site but its management can pose a challenge. From water scarcity through to water excess, mine dewatering can be a difficult process to navigate. Are you struggling with your site’s dewatering system? Whether you need to install a new dewatering circuit or iron out issues with an existing one, we’ve got you ...
An Australian-based coal mine anticipated that their coal tailings volume would exceed the life of the tailings storage facility well before the designed completion. The mine approached Nalco Water for a solution that would ultimately help them extend the life of their tailings storage facility while increasing the recovery of return water.
The study should provide the coal mining industry with useful concepts and general guidance in deter- mining the technical and economical feasibility of thus dewatering an active coal mine The study also suggests measures that may be cost-effective in controlling mine water quality with typical mine water removal systems.

Dewatering: We improve operating efficiency, reduce risks and reduce costs by drawing on our dewatering expertise, downhole technology and mine water management programs. Pit slope depressurisation: We improve pit slope performance by relying on a clear and integrated understanding of engineering geology, groundwater and mine design.
creases the social acceptance of the mine. Water management is a continuous process that needs to be developed and updated throughout the whole mine life cycle, for example when changes in min-ing operations also affect the water balance. In the different phases of a mine’s life cycle, the water management program will change.
