Water Handling In Underground Mining

Water Control in Underground Mines – Grouting or

2012-2-19  Mine dewatering and grouting are the two most common methods of ground water control in underground mining. Both methods have advantages and limitations and their applications typically depend on a variety of factors. These factors include the hydrogeologic characteristics of the mine, the depth of the mine and mining methods, and the potential ...

Underground Water Management for the Mining industry

What’s more, permafrost thawing is accelerated by heating in the work areas. The areas natural underground water is unusually highly saline. Finally, underground water carries a low quantity of ammonia nitrogen ensuing from explosives. Each of these challenges was a factor for this mining operation in Northern Canada.

Underground mining and water management - Curtin

In this paper we review trends in underground mining, water use and associated water issues. We then compile a structured set of strategic and operational risks that are pertinent to underground operations. The causes, threats, opportunities and measures for controlling or mitigating the risks are summarised. The risk compilation could provide ...

Water. Large quantities of water are used in mining operations for cooling machinery, dust suppression, cleaning, fire-fighting and drinking. Water supplies are normally carried in steel pipes from surface to points close to the work places, with flexible hoses used for the final connections. One of the primary uses of water underground is for ...

WASTE WATER TREATMENT AND MANAGEMENT

2018-10-11  As mine water accumulates when the water level overflows the depth of an open pit surface mine or an underground mine, the water must be pumped or drained out of the mine to ensure safety and stability. Depending on the water accessibility and feature, it may be re-used for development applications on site such as framework water, filth ...

Managing water consumption in mining

2013-8-21  But it isn’t just the procurement of water that’s a problem; water extraction is also an issue. In many cases, especially with underground mining, water needs to be pumped away from a mine site, which can reduce the levels of ground water, deplete surface water
