Mining

Centralized water data management, auditing, powerful analytics, and reporting help streamline water regulatory compliance and support cost-effective optimal production.

Water is used to extract valuable minerals. Droughts and floods can impact mine production, increase operational costs, and cause shutdowns. Economic, regulatory, social, and environmental pressures are mounting. The use, treatment, recycling, and disposal of water are becoming a key issue. Sustainable water management requires timely and accurate water data.

Mining companies trust AQUARIUS for the efficient management of water data to optimize commercial production, minimize downtime, and streamline compliance to tightening environmental regulations.
