Grassy Mountain Coal Mine Water Management Lead

Riversdale Resources engaged MEMS as the water management lead to coordinate and collaborate with various engineering consultants through the Bankable Feasibility Study. As water issues on the mine site are a key issue for regulatory compliance, the coordination and refinement of water-related plans was assigned to MEMS in addition to the existing role of leading the environmental impact assessment. The water management lead role includes contributions to water supply strategy, the selenium management plan, the site wide water management plan, the siting and configuration of ponds, technical oversight of drainage design, and a senior advisory role on the mine plan or construction plans where pro-active environmental mitigation or cost efficiencies may be possible.
