Anglo American: Dartbrook Coal Mine
Environmental developed an OPSIM Model of the Dartbrook Underground
Site. The mine is currently on care and maintenance. A dynamic daily
water balance model for Dartbrook Coal Mine was developed. The emphasis
was on forecasting the recovery of the water table in the goaf and
modelling strategies that maximised consumption of water on the site.
Environmental designed, supplied and installed 88 vibrating wire
piezometers at 16 locations for Dartbrook Coal Mine, and for the
proposed Drayton South Mine.
