Abstract

Mining usually requires dewatering but water is also needed in mining for many purposes. Further more, water is a valuable resource. There are many examples for the utilisation of waters produced by mining. However, there are also limitations for utilising mine water like poor quality or limited demand. This paper gives an overview of the utilisation of mine water and discusses general limitation based on international literature. Although “Maximising use of waters produced by mining” does not make sense as an exclusive goal in itself mine water should be utilised where sustainably possible.
