Saving every precious drop so your mine can flourish

Water affects your mine at every stage of its life. Beginning as a drop of rain, it soaks into voids to feed groundwater and fills the rivers and lakes that provide your mine’s water supply. It’s an integral part of your operation.

When you close a mine, efforts are made to divert water away from it, while any remaining contact water is treated. Restored back to its clean and natural state, water can flow through the system again. We’re here to help you make sure that happens.

From securing supply to processing ore, efficient water use contributes to the social license to operate from beginning to end. As your partner, Stantec will help you secure, measure, manage, and value every single drop.

Our expert guidance on water security plans, water stewardship practices, and sustainable mining by design practices provides you with frameworks to meet water-related targets. Our services include baseline studies, water balance and water quality modelling, and water and tailings infrastructure engineering. To mitigate liabilities, we also offer mine water treatment, water re-use services, and lifecycle planning.
