Groundwater Model Development to Assess Fluid Flux at the Buena Vista Mine

Affiliation(s) PI Project period Funded by
DHS Pohll, Gregory M 02/13/2012 - 02/12/2013 Wallace Environmental Consulting, Inc.

Project Description

As part of the permitting process for the Buena Vista Mine Project, DRI will conduct a hydrogeologic analysis to provide a better understanding of the potential groundwater flux toward the open pit mine. A variety of techniques will be used to better understand the hydrgeologic conditions at the site with the final product being a groundwater flow model of the mine site area. The model will be used to calculate the expected groundwater flux to the open pit mine under current and build out conditions.
