To collect the best practices as well as experiences to enable the development of the final mine site water balance concept for possible commercialization. Therefore, documentation of the created concepts, tools and work practices need to be done. Co-operation between all project parties is needed.
Implementing various calculation models and measurements as well as control, reporting and decision-making practices into different sites is challenging because both operating and environmental context of each mine site is different. The know-how, data and part of the modelling software are owned by various parties.
We describe the roadmap and related best practices for selecting the most appropriate calculation models and measurements as well as control, reporting and decision-making practices. The main beneficiary parties are mines, consultants and environmental administration as well as the research institutes taking part in this project. The role of each partner in the commercialization of the final product is brightened.
