Being led by internationally-renowned experts, we offer great opportunities for professional development. Our team freely shares decades of learnings from complex mine water management projects in diverse locations globally.
We routinely get involved in complex, multi-disciplinary projects that require skillsets beyond those listed below. At these times, we select a group of external associates with complementary skills and an impeccable pedigree gained from working on projects throughout the world. This keeps our internal project teams small and specialised, made up of the following professionals:
Our hydrogeologists are specialised in groundwater and its impact on the subsurface environment. They have experience in open pit, underground, mine inflow control, dewatering, abstraction, impact assessments and depressurization. They work at all project stages; from pre-feasibility studies to greenfields and active mine site management.
Our modelling team has undertaken all aspects of groundwater modelling. They have experience at all stages of development from Pre-Feasibility to Detailed Design. The team has delivered large regional models with complex ground, surface and plant water interaction, through to mine-scale evaluation of depressurisation and pore-pressure.
Our team undertakes planning, risk assessments and environmental studies of surface water flow systems. This will include investigations into rainfall, flow and flood analyses that may impact the site of operations. Their focus is on compiling, synthesising and analysing data to develop accurate 1D-2D surface water models and water balance models.
Our engineers have extensive experience in consulting with the mining sector on engineering design projects for pit dewatering, water supply, water management and flood protection. They have undertaken all aspects of design ranging from large, whole mine site water supply and dewatering, to smaller camp water supply systems.
