Sandfire’s water woes

While investors should keep an eye out for further developments, Sandfire is well equipped to handle this operational setback.

Water is always a problem for mining companies. Either they haven’t got enough when working in a dry environment, or they have too much, because when you dig a hole it becomes a natural drainage point.

Both problems, too little and too much, can be fixed either by importing water from nearby aquifers, rivers or dams, or by installing de-watering pumps to remove an excess.
