SRK at Mine Closure 2018

Learn from geochemical and hydrogeological case studies that demonstrate the value of a multidisciplinary approach to mine closure.
Grasberg Mine
Keynote Presentation:
The importance of geochemistry 
in closure design: A case study for a site in Laos
Mitigating water quality impacts to downstream receptors is a key aspect of successful mine closure. Using a site-wide water and solute load balance allowed SRK to understand how contaminant release could be effectively mitigated as part of the closure design.

Technical Presentation:
Closure Water Balance Model to Support Closure Designs for the Western and Central Development Areas at a site in Laos
The use of a probabilistic approach to estimate ground and surface water flows allowed for evaluation of uncertainty due to highly seasonal rainfall, providing meaningful results to assist with closure planning for the site.
