Note on a possible approach to the assessment of surface water in opencast mines in the British Isles
- 21 Downloads
An outline is given of the use of the Flood Studies Report to estimate mean and peak surface water flows at a proposed opencast mine site in the British Isles. Whilst this is an empirical method it appears to provide reasonable order of magnitude estimates which can be related to mine life and acceptable levels of risk.
