Mining-Related Hydrologic Studies

For mine development projects, understanding the surface water and ground water hydrology in the project area is of paramount importance, so that potential impacts due to mining can be assessed and mitigated, while potential mine water supplies can also be evaluated. In addition, both the operational and the retirement aspects of the mine should be evaluated during the initial studies of the mine feasibility so that issues related to changes in the hydrologic regime are understood upfront.
