Since 1979 the “International Mine Water Association” has been organizing annual international meetings focused on various aspects
of mine water, including its hydrology, chemistry, biology, environmental aspects, and potential reuse, as well as how best to control it through better prediction, mine water management and treatment.
Polluted mine water is one of the major threats to the aquatic environment around mining operations. It might interfere negatively with surface water and groundwater and these effects can have a long-lasting influence. To minimise these effects on the ecosystem, mining engineers, consultants, legislators and scientists are working hand in hand. Read more >>
The IMWA2019 Conference theme is “MINE WATER: Technological and Ecological Challenges”. The conference will address one of the most urgent issues of today. Mining wastes and mine water are causing deterioration of the environment.
This makes companies and researchers develop new technological approaches to mining waste and mine water management, mine water treatment and the restoration of the environment.
