Tech Talk – Conserving Water Resources

The second Tech Talk in Austmine's 2022 ESG Webinar series will explore water management solutions.


Mining is a thirsty industry with water being used end-to-end across operations to wash ore, manage dust emissions, slurry tailings, generate power and more. Pressure is increasing for the industry to recognise the strain placed on global water reserves and to find production and processing methods that reduce water impacts and consumption. 

Technologies explored include: 

  • Water recovery, filtration and cleaning
  • Dry sorting, processing and stacking  
  • Water quality monitoring and compliance

Paul Callaghan, Director, OLEOLOGY

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is one of the most topical and critical issues currently facing the global resources sector, with pressure coming not only from government, environmentalists and shareholders, but from senior management within the resource companies themselves to ensure they are compliant. 

Paul Callaghan, water treatment and ESG advocate delves into the opportunities and how OLEOLOGY is changing the game to become a win/win situation for the mining sector especially for Non Processing infrastructure.
