Assessment of hydrogeological conditions in a high rainfall environment, Elang Project, Indonesia

About this Event

Due to a delay in the installation of a new AV system at the seminar venue, we have postponed the scheduled August talk for another week. The event will be held on the 12th of August.

Presentation by: Alan Puhalovich, Principal Hydrogeologist, Golder Associates

Elang Project is a copper-gold deposit located at Sumbawa Island, Indonesia. The deposit is defined by several intrusions of diorite, intrusive breccia, tonalite and dacite porphyry hosted within faulted rocks of volcanic origin.

Alan Puhalovich, a Principal Hydrogeologist with Golder Associates, will summarise the outcomes of site hydrogeological assessments, conducted in a challenging physical environment comprising steep (topographic) slopes, high rainfall (~2.5 m/annum), artesian conditions and perennial river baseflows.

Investigations comprised borehole coring, downhole geophysics surveys, airlift and packer testing, water quality analyses and river baseflow analyses. Alan will describe the results of these assessments and how they have been used to define a conceptual hydrogeological model, used to support a mine dewatering assessment.

This presentation draws on information contained in a paper titled ‘Hydrogeology of the Elang Copper Project, Sumawa Island, Indonesia’ delivered by A Puhalovich & T Samuel at Australasian Groundwater Conference 2019, Brisbane, Australia, 24-27 November 2019.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the Theatrette can currently host only 40 people and we are not allowed to stand around in the foyer. For this reason, it is of paramount importance that you secure your seat by registering on line and walk directly to the Theatrette as you arrive at the conference centre.
