The source of your mine's success

Water impacts your mine at every stage of its life. Beginning as a drop of rain, the water drop either soaks into voids to feed groundwater or fills the rivers and lakes that provide your mine’s water supply. Water is an integral part of your operations. When you close the mine, efforts are made to divert water away from the mine, while any remaining contact water is treated. Restored back to its clean and natural state, water flows through the system again. Read More

The best part about this work is overcoming a good challenge.

Early hydrogeological studies critical to mining success

"Hydrogeology is kind of like telling a story. The more you get to know the site, the more you understand the groundwater story. Hydrogeology is mathematical, like engineering, but also has an element that will always be conceptual, because we can't see it, said Rachael Peavler, a hydrogeologist working in Stantec's Salt Lake City office.
