Event Description

Mine Water Solutions in Extreme Environments is the second in an innovative conference series that aims to examine a wide range of issues associated with mine water management in extremely wet, dry, and cold climates and with extreme hydrogeological and geochemical issues. The conference will provide a forum for presentation and discussion about successful practices that enable responsible mining to be undertaken in challenging environments while minimizing water use and/or preserving water resources. All aspects of mine water management, including hydrology, hydrogeology, diversion, containment, water conservation, minimization of water-quality impacts, seepage interception and treatment may be addressed. Management of water associated with mine dewatering, waste rock and tailings are of particular interest.

The thematic areas for 2015 include:

  • Water Management in Extremely Wet Areas
  • Water Management in Extremely Dry Areas
  • Water Management in Extremely Cold Areas (Glacial, Periglacial and Permafrost)
  • Water Management and Climate Change
  • Challenging Geochemical Conditions Over Time
  • Surface Water Over Time
  • Groundwater Over Time
  • Regulatory and Social Challenges
  • Hydrogeology in Deep Mining Environments
  • Physical Control of Contaminants
  • Water Treatment

Early bird registration is open. Register by March 9, 2015 and save!
