The 5th International Congress on Water Management in Mining will take place in May, 2016. The congress will take a closer look at new alternatives in water management throughout the entire mining cycle.
Water is essential for mining production and it becomes even more important in adverse situations, such as the current mining sector. And managing it in an innovative, economical and sustainable way is essential in times like ours where water is scarce.
It is for those reasons that we are holding the 5th International Congress on Water Management in Mining, Water in Mining 2016. It will allow a closer look at new alternatives in water management throughout the entire mining cycle.
This edition of the seminar, which will be held the 18th and 20th of May in the Hotel Grand Hyatt Santiago, Chile, will explore answers to the mining industry’s new challenges by way of exchanging knowledge and experiences among researchers, practitioners and operators.
Also to be explored and identified are the best practices, trends, methodologies and technologies currently used in water management in the mining industry. Furthermore the congress will promote an international, interdisciplinary network among professionals involved in the management of water in mining.
The Conference will be chaired by Mauricio Gironas, Concentrator Plants and Port Manager, Candelaria and Ojos del Salado Mines, Lundin Mining. As Vice Presidents: Neil McIntyre – Director of the Centre for Water in the Industry of the Minerals of SMI at the University of Queensland-, and Virginia Ciminelli – Director of the National Institute of Science and Technology in Mineral Resources, Water and Biodiversity, INCT-Acqua, Brazil.
Water in Mining 2016 is organized by the Centre for Water in Minerals Industry (CWiMI), of the University of Queensland, Australia; The National Institute of Science and Technology in Mineral Resources, Water and Biodiversity of Brazil; and Gecamin.
