Mining projects require careful and strategic planning, but at times it can be hard to predict issues that may arise. Unpredictable weather conditions or the specific layout of a site can cause issues such as excess water to appear.
This impacts greatly on a mine sites operations and becomes a major safety hazard. In cases like this, dewatering is required to fix the problem.
Dewatering is common practice in most mining projects and involves the pumping out of excess ground water or surface water for the purpose of having better conditions on the site. In most cases, it is usually carried out prior to excavation or to lower the water table.
Malcolm Thompson Pumps (MTP) recognises the importance of dewatering and are proud to exclusively offer the Aquaplus SD, SDL and SDA Series pump range. This series of Aquaplus pumps have been specifically designed for mine site dewatering and sump drainage.
