Face & Stage Dewatering

Battling water on the front line 

Water presents and interesting dichotomy in mining. It’s used for mineral processing, dust suppression, slurry transport, cooling and employee needs. However, unmanaged water can be disastrous for a mine. Face and stage dewatering are two of the tougher challenges facing mine operators.

At the drilling face, mine operators have to deal with water ingress from both ground water aquifers, as well as, run down from higher parts in the mine wall. The challenge is that mine operators need to simultaneously clean process water for cooling purposes in the drilling operations, while removing groundwater that quickly accumulates in bore holes.
