BEST PRACTICES AND
Attend to learn valuable strategies for:
- Developing long-term water management strategies to serve the life of the mine, from beginning through to post-closure
- Minimizing costs by optimizing water use throughout the stages of mining production
- Lessening the impact of mining on water quality and developing long-term sustainability plans
Mining in Australia is undergoing a period of intense change, with increasingly volatile commodity prices and tightening environmental regulations. Additionally, shifting weather patterns are leading to more intense floods and periods of drought, and weather events that are harder to predict. With profit margins so tight, and mine water becoming tougher and more expensive to manage, choices among viable mine sites will increasingly be made based on where the water situation is optimal.
As a result, forward-looking mining companies must manage water more effectively in order to stay commercially viable. Itís critical to implement and refine cost effective and sustainable water management systems, to maximize opportunities to reuse water, and to prepare for tightening water regulations. Only those armed with the most up-todate information and strategies will succeed in a rapidly-changing mining environment.
Following the massive success of Infocastís Water Management for Mining conference series held throughout the Americas, Infocast is pleased to bring our Mining Water Management & Treatment Summit to Australia. This critical and timely event provides mining companies, water technology companies, engineers, water infrastructure specialists, regulators, academics and others with a unique forum to meet, network, dig into the issues, and brainstorm solutions for effective water management for the industry.
We look forward to meeting you in Brisbane in August.
