Groundwater Modelling for Mining

May 28, 2015 - May 29, 2015
Vancouver, Canada

UBC Robson Square

The management of groundwater on mine sites has become of greater importance in recent years. Proper management is particularly important from the aspect of environmental concerns as well as its impact on slope stability and dewatering of open pits. Extending the life of existing mines is causing the need for open pits to be deeper and tailings storage facilities to be larger.

This 2-day classroom course covers the aspects of groundwater modeling as related to problems encountered typically at mine sites, providing an overview of the practical applications of probabilistic principles in groundwater modeling of complex earth structures. Attendees will be given complimentary trial versions of the SVOffice – SVFlux groundwater software such that they can follow along during software demonstrations.
