dc.description.abstractThe increased demand for energy related minerals has caused renewed interest in mining. Many of the ore deposits are below or within aquifers. To retrieve this ore, the water must be removed from the mine. Ascertaining the need for dewatering/depressuring requires the use of elementary and complex procedures. Digital computer models have been used to simulate aquifer systems and can be used to test dewatering/ depressuring schemes if certain precautions are taken. A digital model using a program developed by T. A. Prickett and C. G. Lonnquist has been developed in the Gas Hills, Wyoming Uranium Mining District to test a proposed dewatering/depressuring scheme for an underground uranium mine. Results of this test indicate that digital models can be used to predict dewatering/depressuring scheme effects, but continued monitoring of the piezometric surface in the area of the mine once dewatering/depressuring commences is needed in order to validate the predictions of the model.
