A presentation on approaches to assess groundwater pressure responses to open cut and underground mining for depressurisation and dewatering.
The presentation will outline some of the recent initiatives in pore pressure monitoring system installation and management for open-cut mining. Specific examples will be provided showing direct cost savings realised from better understanding of mine slope pore pressures.
