2019 AMA Convention Short Course: Cold Regions Water Management

November 4, 2019 | 8am - 5pm | Dena'ina Convention Center

Description

Water management is essential to nearly all mining and mineral processing activities, and its practice from exploration through closure must adhere to environmental requirements that can impact the advancement of a project, economic success of an operating mine, and effective mine closure. Cold region conditions and permafrost present an additional challenge to the management of water. This short course will focus on the unique water management challenges in cold regions, innovative approaches, and practical solutions. Topics to be covered include surface and groundwater systems influenced by cold region processes, water, and load balance development, design of water management infrastructure founded on permafrost, and water treatment. Several case studies will be presented to demonstrate practical and cost-effective approaches to the management of water in cold regions.
