Event Description

First International Conference on Mine Water Solutions in Extreme Environments

Call for abstracts - 2 July!\

Themes:

Water Management in Extremely Wet Areas

• Precipitation & prediction of flooding and the influence of climate change

• Diversion design, erosion management & control during extreme events

• Waste disposal challenges & control of impacted water

• Water storage & treatment

• Mine closure

• Laws & regulations

 

Water Management in Extremely Dry Areas

• Water sources preservation & alternate water supply strategies

• Tailings management to minimize water losses & closure to preserve groundwater

• Managing salts accumulation & dust

• Laws & regulations

• Water desalination

• Water reuse

 

Water Management in Extremely Cold Areas

(Periglacial & Permafrost)

• Seasonal frost effects

• Permafrost characterization, hydrology and water yields

• Cold regions operating conditions & management practices

• Cold regions mine site hydrology and hydraulic issues (e.g. ice blockage)

• Dam design in cold regions and permafrost

• Climate change design criteria and permafrost impacts

• Mine waste closure in cold environments

 

Complex Hydrogeological Settings

(Karst & fracture flow)

• Advances in investigation techniques

• Karst hydrochemistry                                                                                                                  

• Mine & quarry dewatering

• Modeling of karstic aquifers

• Engineered measures to reduce seepage and piping of tailings 

 

Challenging Geochemical Conditions

• Investigation, testing & predicting water quality for water management

• Geochemical control measures for underground and open pit mines, mine waste & tailings deposits

• Water treatment for impacted water

• Contaminant transfer modeling.
