Mining and Environment 

Mining can have some devastating environmental impacts that can cause water acidification, soil erosion and the degradation of local ecosystems. While some methods have less impact than others, it almost always has a serious and lasting environmental impact. 

Our role is ensure that all stakeholders remain regularly updated, and informed at Workshops, Seminars and Conferences focused on ; 

  • Minimising environmental impact at mine sites

  • Mine Waste Water treatment

  • Climate adaptation in Mining 

  • Groundwater impact assessments

  • Environmental Science and Engineering

  • Social insights

Oceans and Environment 

Healthy oceans and the marine species living in them provide natural at-scale solutions to climate adaptation and resilience—and they absorb vast amounts of carbon dioxide. Oceans fuel the water cycles that produce rain and freshwater and create oxygen

The world’s oceans cover approximately 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, indicating their importance to the global environment. In addition to having a large influence on global heat transport and precipitation, the oceans are comprised of diverse habitats that support a wealth of marine wildlife.

 

Regular workshops, seminars are held throughout the year. We regularly research challenges, in this sector and communicate these by bringing together all disciplines to remain updated, connected and informed

Waste and Environment 

The negative environmental impacts caused by mining wastes are severe and cause damage to human health and the loss and degradation of natural ecosystems. 

Mining waste can also contain large quantities of dangerous substances, such as heavy metals. Extracting and processing metals and metal compounds can result in acid or alkaline drainage.

In addition, tailings management is often involves residual processing chemicals and elevated levels of metals. Tailings are often stored in heaps or in large ponds surrounded by a dam. These can collapse, with disastrous consequences and a lasting impact on human health, the economy and the environment.

Properly managing mining waste will also ensure the long-term stability of disposal facilities. It will prevent or minimise water and soil pollution arising from acid or alkaline drainage and the leaching of heavy metals.

Workshops, Conferences and Seminars are held regularly throughout the year.
