    The Sishen Iron Ore Company (Pty) Ltd (SIOC) proposes to direct surplus groundwater generated from the de-watering process at the Kolomela Mine into aquifers located within the Groenwaterspruit to the east of the mine. The need for this has arisen because the mine uses relatively little water in comparison to the dewatering process, and Sedibeng

    Introduction to dewatering: The process of dewatering is used for the foundation trenches ground of the high water table, water-logging area. The excavations are carried out by dewatering the sub-soil water and water must be pumped into an area filled with water for which the foundation is to be excavated.. In a waterlogged area, at the time of excavation timber and strutting are very

    Our Sishen and Kolomela mines continue to manage issues of concern among certain local farmers regarding mine dewatering that potentially affects the availability of groundwater. In 2017 we have been negotiating the purchase of three farms around Sishen in order to create a buffer zone. Kolomela mine artificially recharges clean mine water to the
