Neves Corvo Mine: ​Surface Water Management & Infrastructure​

Neves Corvo Mine: ​Surface Water Management & Infrastructure​



SLR are assisting Lundin Mining Corporation to improve their surface water management system for an operational underground Zinc mine. The Neves-Corvo polymetallic base metal mine is located approximately 220km southeast of Lisbon in the Alentejo province of southern Portugal.

SLR have adopted a risk based approach to the scope, where we will integrate the expected complex climatic issues with optimised engineering designs, world-leading mine water management experience, permitting considerations, mine expansion plans and also take cognisance of our client’s responsible mining policy. 

The overall aim is to;​

• Minimise nuisance surface water flooding which may disrupt operations;​

• Reduce risks caused by sedimentation and reduce maintenance costs of such; and​

• Ensure regulatory compliance.​
