Groundwater Impact Assessment
Mining operations may impact local groundwater systems due to mine dewatering, groundwater extraction (for milling) and/or seepage and contaminant migration from mine waste units (backfilled open pits, waste rock piles and/or tailings dams). Robertson GeoConsultants Inc. is an international leader in assessing groundwater impacts due to mining.
Groundwater impact assessments may range from a desktop study/review of available information to a complex hydrogeological study involving site characterization (drilling, well installations, hydraulic testing), groundwater monitoring and/or groundwater flow and solute transport modeling.
Robertson GeoConsultants Inc. has expertise in all those technical areas and is therefore in a position to taylor the scope of the groundwater impact assessment to your project needs.
