HydroMine:  Surface Water and Groundwater Technology in Mining

Welcome to HydroMine
The key to successful, cost-effective mining is sufficient clean water and avoidance of water pollution. Two new EduMine courses provide you with the theory and practice you need to do the right water-thing at your mine:
  1. Surface Water Management at Mines deals with the theory of and best management practices for control of surface water that may otherwise impede mine operations and lead to pollution best avoided for cost-effective operations.
  2. Groundwater in Mining focuses 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.

These courses will soon be joined by a third EduMine course on Mine and Mine-Facility Water Balances. Taken together, the EduMine courses and the resources of this site provide all the information you need to plan, manage, and protect water at your mine.
