Mina Big Ledge

Project Highlights:

  • Cierre de minas
  • Manejo de aguas
  • Balance de aguas

Tierra Group desarrolló un modelo de balance de agua para rastrear los flujos hacia un pozo rellenado en la operación cerrada Barita de la mina Big Ledge, cerca de Wells, Nevada. El modelo se usó para determinar el tamaño de la tubería a un estanque de tratamiento remoto utilizado para eliminar los flujos a través del tratamiento del agua y la evaporación. El modelo de balance hídrico incluyó el estanque de tratamiento para el dimensionamiento, evaluando las tasas de evaporación a dos elevaciones diferentes, así como el impacto del contenido elevado de sólidos disueltos totales (TDS) en las tasas de evaporación.
