John Slavin (General Electric)

Removing water from mines is a problem as old as mining itself. The challenge is aggravated by ever increasing mine depths and more productive mining techniques. This presentation provides an overview of recent advances in mine dewatering by applying high performance pumping systems and solids management technologies developed for Oil & Gas processing into the mining area.
