Mine De-Watering DrillingWhile fresh water sources is important at a mine site - too much water can be an issue, especially if it gets into the pit or stope, where it has nowhere to drain to, thus limiting seasonality, safety, and productivity for the entire project.
Thus, groundwater and dewatering control is a fundamental part of many mine plans.
In conjunction with our partner suppliers, a combination of pumps, perimeter dewater wells, slope drains, cut-offs, and more are all service offerings to alleviate projects of water issues.
The versatility of the Energold fleet means there are several rigs adaptable to this job. The Watertec 40's ability to drill large diameter holes to great depths makes it ideal for mine site dewatering.
