M&A staff present talks at the NWMA convention

Posted on by

Four of M&A’s senior-level hydrogeologists — Jim Davis, Hale BarterMark Cross, and Heather Gluski — will be participating in the Northwest Mining Association’s 117th annual meeting. This year’s event, “Rocks to Riches,” features technical sessions, exhibits, and short courses that will be held from November 28–December 2 in Sparks, Nevada.

Jim is chairing the Groundwater Issues in Mining session. This session will address the groundwater quantity and quality issues encountered during all phases of mining projects, from prefeasibility through post closure. He will also present a talk about the technical, administrative, and legal challenges associated with water supply planning for the Rosemont Project. Jim, who has been with M&A since 1985, served as the Tucson Section Chair, the Pacific Southwest Region Chair, and Arizona Chapter Vice-Chair of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration.

Hale, who leads M&A’s Hydrologic Modeling group, will also present his work on the Rosemont project. He led the development of a model for the proposed mine’s EIS.

M&A is a sponsor and an exhibitor at this event. If you’re attending, be sure to stop by booth #305. To learn more about the convention, visit the NWMA website.
