Review and Analysis of the Hycroft Mine Groundwater Flow Model

Affiliation(s) PI Project period Funded by
DHS Pohll, Gregory M 10/11/2012 - 12/31/2012 Hycroft Resources and Development, Inc.

Project Description

In support of the permitting process for the Hycroft open pit mine, SRK consultants constructed a three-dimensional groundwater flow model to understand the imapcts of pit dewatering on the local groundwater system. The model encompasses the open pit mine and beyond to ensure that boundary condition impacts have minimal impact on the solution. Allied Nevada Gold has asked DRI to provide an external review of the model and any associated work products that are used to cnstruct the model. The model and its predictions are going to be presented to the the Bureau of Land Management as part of a larger permitting package.
