Water in Mining 2006

Add to cart
Water in Mining 2006 was the second AusIMM conference dedicated solely to
water issues affecting mining and minerals processing. The theme of the 2006
Conference was Multiple Values of Water'. This provided an opportunity for the
minerals industry to write papers across the spectrum of water management from
the technical, eg dewatering, evaporation control and minerals processing, to
policy (corporate, government and industry-wide) and onto the more abstract and
slippery concepts of the way water might be valued in terms of sustainable
development. A strong thread that emerged in the papers is the importance of
people and partnerships which weaves though policy and case studies and is
clearly international in its extent.
