Several courses are given each year by the staff of KLM Consulting Services and its associates. The courses are designed for managers, engineers and geologists working in a mine environment, where groundwater, (either too much or too little) needs to be managed. The emphasis is balanced between hard mining issues, such as the prediction, occurrence and removal of groundwater, as well as the environmental considerations and reduction in pollution. Professionals who manage groundwater projects also benefit from the courses.
The skills gained from the courses are:
• A thorough understanding of groundwater occurrence and movement;
• An understanding of different mine dewatering techniques;
• The ability to manage groundwater projects and optimise returns;
• The ability to identify potential sources of pollution.
