Hydrogeological Assessment – Mining Operations

The Challenge

Integrated Sustainability was commissioned to prepare a hydrogeological assessment in support of reopening a mine that was in a maintenance state, but has been in various stats of operation since the 1970’s. Plans to restart mining operations under the BC Mines Act: Ministry of Mines Permit M33 warrant an assessment of baseline hydrogeology at the site in the context of risk identification and mitigation.

The Result

Integrated Sustainability conducted a hydrogeological assessment of the area surrounding the site that included:

  • A description of baseline hydrogeological conditions and mine dewatering activities
  • A summary of background data
  • Identification of potential impacts to groundwater
  • Recommendations and discussion of risk mitigation and monitoring plans for the site
