Water in Mining – Webinar

5 May 10am - 12pm

Presentations and video recording here.

Background

Water is a fundamental resource for life, availability of and access to water that meets quality and quantity requirements is a critical need across the world. In mining, water is used within a broad range of activities including mineral processing, dust suppression, slurry transport, and employee requirements. Historically, the mining industry has been, on many occasions, appointed to be related to the degradation of local water bodies and their surrounding environments. Regardless, responsible management of water by mining companies is a key ingredient in ensuring that their contribution to sustainable development is positive over the long term.

Water management is integral for mining success and for building sustainable businesses, and as such, investors, communities, governments and other industries are demanding that mining companies become more efficient at water reuse and water management.

The space sector has an opportunity to validate and demonstrate the benefit of using satellite technologies to monitor local water bodies. Satellite imagery coupled with innovations in visualisation and analytics provides a platform from which information about the water can be effectively communicated to the wider stakeholder group including the local communities who are impacted. The information generated from space could provide analysis of water quality focused on turbidity, surface algal blooms, vegetation health including the analysis of different proxies to maximize the environmental monitoring capabilities.
