Dewatering

For every stage in your operation’s life cycle.

AQ2’s experience and expertise cover all aspects of mine dewatering and depressurisation, including:

  • Assessment of inflow rates.
  • Associated impact assessment.
  • Design of dewatering infrastructure.
  • Operational implementation.
  • Monitoring reviews.

Our approach to dewatering assessment tailors our specific solutions to each stage of the project. Our advice reduces the risk your operation is exposed to from the scoping phase to the detailed design phase. We define practicable dewatering approaches that integrate seamlessly with the mine plan.

Our solutions span the following areas:

  • Preliminary assessment and conceptual designs for open-cut and underground dewatering requirements.
  • Design and supervision of field investigations, including collecting data from mineral drilling and dedicated hydrogeological drilling programmes.
  • Detailed analysis supporting the development of conceptual and numerical models to predict inflow and depressurisation.
  • Integration of mine dewatering with wholistic site water management, including water supply and surplus water management.
  • Assessment of excess water disposal options.
  • Specialist input such as technical and feasibility studies, impact assessment, regulatory compliance and licencing.
