Mr Hedjripour's presentation will outline the findings from case studies carried out on a number of coal mines across Queensland and New South Wales.
He proposes a technique for efficient selection of mine water containment facilities and dewatering infrastructure to meet the 'no-spill criteria' set by State environmental legislation.
Mr Hedjripour states, ‘Cost-effective water management solutions are critical for clients in the mining sector.
'I’m pleased to work with a team who stretch the boundaries of innovation. We adopt state-of-the-art modelling tools and techniques to deliver outcomes to clients that truly add value to their businesses.’
Effective handling of potentially contaminated water is a vital factor in the design and management of mine water infrastructure. Economic assessment suggests optimised configuration of these facilities could have a significant impact on the capital and operational expenditure of mining operations.
The joint symposium provides a platform for over 400 delegates, representing all levels of governments, universities, students, researchers, contractors, suppliers and consultants to showcase best-practice and share their knowledge with leaders from Government and industry.
