M&A staff members Todd Keay, Joseph Baker, and Steve Smith will be attending a new conference — Mine Water Solutions in Extreme Environments — this year. The event will be held April 15–17, in Lima, Perú. The conference will provide a forum for discussing practices that enable responsible mining in challenging environments — extremely dry, wet, cold, hydrogeologically complex, and geochemically complex conditions — while minimizing water use and/or preserving water resources.
The conference will feature a paper by M&A’s Lyle Davis, a principal engineer and mining specialist, and Dr. Mark Thomasson, who will present it on April 16. The paper is entitled “Development and Transient Calibration of a Numerical Model for an Open-pit Mine Located in a Geologically Complex Fractured-rock Setting.”
