Mine dewatering

Mine dewatering is the action of removing groundwater from a mine When a mine extends below the water table groundwater will due to gravity infiltrate the mine workings On some projects groundwater is a minor impediment that can be dealt with on an ad-hoc basis In other mines and in other geological settings dewatering is fundamental to the viability of the mine and may require the use...
