Reduce water footprint, tailings and environmental risks with effective waste and water management

Mining operators face a host of long-term liabilities when it comes to waste and water management when executed haphazardly. Disposal of materials needs to be handled with detailed engineering, monitoring and maintenance at every stage of the mining life cycle to ensure compliance with environmental regulations.

Tailings need to be safely contained and managed, water management plans and recycling efforts need to be implemented in the face of scarcity, and mitigation measures are necessary to prevent contamination, erosion and sedimentation in nearby water bodies. Not only do sediment or acid runoffs result in costly cleanup efforts that can be financially damaging to a mine operator’s bottom line, but social license to operate and investment prospects can also be severely affected.

Key Client Challenges:

  1. How can we minimize water consumption in our mining processes and optimize water use efficiency?
  2. What are the best practices for tailings management and how can we ensure safe containment and long-term stability of tailing storage facilities?
  3. What technologies can we leverage for treating and managing acid mine drainage (AMD)?
  4. How do we effectively monitor and control water quality, comply with regulatory requirements and protect local ecosystems?
  5. What are the financial and operational implications of implementing sustainable water and waste management practices? How do we balance environmental responsibility with economic considerations?

A multi-faceted approach that incorporates technological innovation, improved operational practices, stakeholder engagement and collaboration with regulators and local communities can secure your mine’s social license to operate, ensure ESG compliance, and prevent costly fines and cleanups for environmental damage.
