Coal of Africa
Minerals are seldom found in areas of plentiful water required for the mining and processing operations. Bigen has been involved in several feasibility studies to identify external water resources for planned or existing mining operations.
Coal of Africa required water for coal washing for several mines in the Soutpansberg coalfield.
Bigen assessed regional water resources and developed a water resource development strategy for these operations, including innovative irrigation efficiency improvements and water license ‘swops’.
