Hydrogeological review, Port Hedland Operations

Hydrogeological review, Port Hedland Operations

A hydrogeological review was undertaken of the Nelson Point and
Finucane Island iron ore processing
sites at Port Hedland, in the Pilbara,
Western Australia.

THIS IS AN HISTORICAL PROJECT

A review of previous investigation studies was undertaken, including the
under-harbour tunnel construction project linking the two sites.

A walkover survey and monitoring exercise was undertaken in existing
bores. This data was used to develop a conceptual hydrogeological model
for both sites.

The relationship between groundwater, surface water and marine water flows in channels was examined.

The existing database was validated against laboratory data, and
recommendations made for improvements in data gathering and
storage procedures.

Recommendations were made for improvements to existing data and
for further investigation to address data gaps
