  • Changes in river discharge structure and regime in mining-industrial-urban areas

    In mining-industrial-urban areas, the variability of river discharge is regulated, directly or indirectly, by human economic activity. This results from the presence of alien water, which often comes from outside the catchment area, is discharged into the river network. This water includes industrial and municipal wastewater and deep-drainage mine water. Simultaneously, as a result of water ...

  • Dynamic simulation of water resource management focused on water allocation and water reclamation in Chinese mining cities

    Mining cities have undergone the process of extensive exploitation, which always results in a series of water issues. Integrated water resource management is necessary in improving water supply, allocation and quality without damaging economic development. This article constructs a linear optimization model including a ‘Top-Down’ socio-economic mode, and ‘Bottom-Up’ water quality control and ...

  • Good water governance and IWRM in Zambia: challenges and chances

    The implementation of principles for water governance is widely accepted but challenging for the whole water sector of a developing country like Zambia, because of the legal and administrative changes and organizational requirements involved. In February 2010, a revised water policy for Zambia was approved by the Cabinet. The revised National Water Policy 2010 aims to improve water resources ...

  • Influence of Copper Mine on Surface Water Quality

    Aras water basin is located in northwest of Iran. Sungun mine which is the largest open-cast copper mine of Iran is located in this region and is in the primary stages of extraction. The influence of mining activity on the quality of regional surface water has been taken in to consideration in this study. Accordingly, sampling was done from 5 local streams in the study area. In order to consider ...

  • Open water spill at Kemess Mine in Canada

    We received a request for SpillRemed (Industrial) from Kemess Mine located in the rocky mountains in Canada. The mine was so inaccessible that it took almost 10 days for the shipment to reach the customer. The company had a diesel spill in the containment berm and as per the standard protocol absorbent booms were placed to recover the spill, but unfortunately the boom absorbed water and sank at ...

  • The future of the red metal: discards, energy, water, residues, and depletion

    Estimates for mine tailings, smelter slag, mine overburden, stock buildup, loss of copper discards to the landfills, and energy and water use requirements have been presented based upon scenario analysis results of three alternative copper futures. The resource availability concerns emerge to be the most critical. Globally, the copper resource availability barrier might potentially emerge during ...

  • Peristaltic Pumps play key role in rectifying the pH balance of mine water

    After decades of uncontrolled industrial (mining) activities, water supply is under serious threat. Studies show that acid water levels in the country's mines are rising at a staggering average rate of 0.59 m/day. The water situation is in fact threatening the population’s survival. At the heart of resolving this problem are the treatment of water and wastewater. This article looks at ...

  • Geological barrier--a natural rock stratus for preventing confined karst water from flowing into mines in North China

    Abstract Coalfields in North China encompassing more than ten Provinces contain six to seven coal seams in the Permo-Carboniferous strata. The lower three seams, accounting for 37% of the total reserves, are threatened with karst water from the underlain Ordovician limestone. Hundreds of water inrush incidences have occurred in which a large amount of water suddenly flows into tunnels or working ...
