Published in Mining Magazine: In the Flow

October 4, 2019

Water is a key resource for the mining industry, and mines require comprehensive water-management plans to be able to operate safely and sustainably

 

Water forms an essential component of both mining and mineral processing. Following these activities however, the water that is left over can be a potential source of pollution for the surrounding environment. Moreover, a shortage or surplus of water, due to variations in temperature and rainfall, can create additional challenges at mine sites.

In this issue of Mining Magazine, Mining Vice President Andrew Watson outlines the components of a responsible water management strategy to mitigate risks and reinforce the miner’s social license to operate.
