water catchmentThe International Council on Mining and Metals has published a guide to catchment-based water management in mining and metals operations.

The guide sets out a collaborative approach to water management that considers the needs, concerns and priorities of other water users and promotes inclusive and ongoing engagement with all stakeholders, ICMM says.

The document is structured as an interactive prompt to guide companies in the development of their water strategies and plans in accordance with the local context and hydrology in which mining and metals operations take place.

Developed through consultation across the mining and metals industry, with other industries and with world-recognized water management experts, the guidance provides an effective tool for planning and managing responsible mining operations, ICMM says.
