In this course, we focus on groundwater theory and practice applicable to mines and the specifics of open pits, shafts, underground mine workings, heap leach pads, waste rock dumps, and tailings impoundments. We discuss, for each of these facilities, the principles of groundwater and facility design & operation that apply and must be implemented to control and protect groundwater and surface water.
This course is one of a series of related courses, some of which are still in development, including
- Groundwater in Mining
- Surface Water Management at Mines
- Mine Water Balance Analysis
