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 droplet either soaks into voids to feed groundwater or fills the rivers and lakes that provide your mine’s water supply. It’s an integral part of your operations.

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.

One of your mine’s most valuable resources

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

Responsible water use

Our expert guidance on water security plans, water stewardship practices, and sustainable mine design provides you with frameworks to meet water-related targets.

Mine water management at every stage of your mine’s life

Our services include baseline studies, water balance and water quality modeling, and water and tailings infrastructure engineering. To mitigate liabilities, our team also offers mine water treatment, water re-use services, and lifecycle planning.
