Dewatering is critical to open-pit mining operations and more resources are now being
allocated to its optimisation. If executed correctly, a carefully designed and implemented dewatering system has the potential to increase pit utilisation, reduce mine energy usage, CO₂ emissions and significantly lower OPEX over the life of the mine.
There is a growing awareness that no two mine sites, and their associated requirements are the same. As such, the industry is moving towards customised solutions, which means a one-size-fits-all approach to dewatering is neither cost effective nor sustainable.
The trends informing dewatering practices mirror many of those that are observable across all mining processes:
