International Mine Water Association Conference and International Conference on Acid Rock Drainage

Join us in Pretoria at this marquee double-header event! These combined international conferences bring together the latest in mine water management and treatment, and the geochemistry that ties everything together. Following on the release of the GARD Guide in 2009, for which Golder led the development team, the mining industry has experienced great strides in the prevention and mitigation of acid rock drainage and in mine water management. We’re looking forward to hearing from our peers in September and contributing to the body of knowledge and implementation of best practices in the mine water field. Keep an eye out for these presentations by Golder:
