Response to WR-22 - Hydraulic Gradients Near Block Cave at Closure
A question about the regional groundwater model was raised and recorded as action item WR-22. The question centered on the hydraulic containment of groundwater near the block cave after closure of the Resolution Mine, and the assertion that it would behave as a sink into the future. This memo will focus directly on answering this question and provide graphical output from the predictive model to demonstrate the hydraulic containment of the groundwater through the years after mine closure.
