Galilee mine water balances


The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from multiple source datasets.

The source datasets are identified in the Lineage field in this metadata statement.

The processes undertaken to produce this derived dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement.

This dataset contains water balance information taken from EIS documents for proposed coal developments in the Galilee subregion. The water balances outline expected dewatering volumes associated with mining, as well as water needs for coal washing and processing. The proposed developments for which an EIS was available at the time of writing are: China Stone, Alpha, Carmichael, China First (Galilee), Kevin's Corner, and South Galilee


This dataset was prepared to inform the water balance calculations made by the BA programme for the Galilee subregion.

Dataset History

Data were compiled from the mine water balance sections of all available EIS or SEIS documentation on proposed coal developments in the Galilee subregion. Data collected included: pumping rates for underground mine dewatering, pumping rates for open cut mine dewatering, runoff over the project area, water needs for mine activities, evaporative losses from storage, expected volumes of controlled release from the project site, and any external water needs expected.
