Dewatering and mine slurry management are essential aspects of many mine and quarry operations. OFT takes a planned and integrated approach towards water management, incorporating the overall mine development strategy, operational requirements and environmental considerations.
Effective dewatering and mine water management strategies deliver cost saving benefits through managing risks and minimising uncertainties condition, All strategic implementation is focusing to secure your mine operation.
OFT’s approach to effective dewatering and mine water management is to adopt a planned and integrated approach throughout the mine lifecycle working closely with mine planning, process and geotechnical engineers. The development of a conceptual model is central to the understanding of the surface water and groundwater environment and dynamics.
A conceptual model is derived through the integration of field data, desk-based analysis and interpretation of specific testing programmes. Predictive modelling using a variety of analytical and numerical tools then enables the proposed mine water management system to be optimised.
