Around the world, as ore deposits in the shallow vadose zone are depleted, mining companies are having to extract ore below the water table, where moisture content of the ore is much greater. This rise impacts each area of the value chain, from resource valuation, design of crusher plants and blending for final shipping. Therefore, there is a strong business case for understanding in situ ore moisture content, specific yield, specific retention, dry bulk density and matrix density.
Solution mining is the extraction of useful minerals naturally dissolved in brine. Commercial brines include shallow brines beneath saline or dry lakes and deep brines from sedimentary basins. Brines are important sources of potash, lithium, copper and other heavier metals and industrial salts. Hydrogeology plays a critical role in determining the economic viability and shaping development strategy of brine-mining operations.
The responsible and efficient development of natural gas, from coal, requires innovative technical solutions, delivered in high volume, at an affordable price.
Coal plays an important role as the primary source of energy for the generation of electricity worldwide. However, the coalification process that converts plant matter to fuel also produces methane and carbon dioxide gases, so the depositional process can leave the coal cleat structure and surrounding formations filled with water. Safe extraction of the coal requires advance knowledge of coal gas content, water filled porosity and system permeability because these will be used to guide water and gas pre-drainage strategies.
Robust, rugged and reliable monitoring tools to successfully characterise hydrocarbon resources and optimise development strategies.
Because of dwindling groundwater supplies through population growth and industrial expansion, hydrogeology now plays a critical role in protecting and managing this vital resource.
