Responsible Water Sourcing for the mining industry

In mining, water is used within a broad range of activities including mineral processing, dust suppression, slurry transport, equipment cleaning and employee requirements. Over the last several decades, the industry has made much progress in developing approaches that maximize water conservation. However at the same time, operations are often located in areas where there are significant competing municipal, agricultural and industrial demands.

The mining industry’s use of and impacts on water can result in a range of environmental, social and economic risks. In some cases, perceptions of high water use are sufficient to cause very real tensions and even conflict. Communities close to mine sites may be concerned about availability of water, security of their access to it and, the potential for water contamination.

The mining sector is increasingly required to demonstrate a leadership approach to water use and management. As water plays an essential role in most mining and extractive processes, responsible water use is a critical business issue that affects the ability of individual mines to establish, operate and close.
