Mine hydrogeology deals with the hydrogeological study of a mine, opencast or underground, in order to fulfill various requirements of the mine. Generally, following three requirements arise: (a) to augment water supply to the mines, colonies and process plants, (b) to assess the dimension of ground water seepage in the mine/s and preparation of dewatering plan and (c) to assess both quantitative and qualitative impact of mining on groundwater regime of the area.
