Sorby Hills: pre-feasibility study

We were engaged by Kimberley Metals Pty Ltd to assist with a pre-feasibility study to develop the Sorby Hills lead, silver, zinc deposit in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia.  The deposit was first investigated in the late 1970s and early 1980s when a decline encountered large groundwater inflows.

Comprehensive investigation program

We designed an investigation program to gain an understanding of pit dewatering issues and options.

Our fieldwork included test pumping trials and to determine dewatering requirements for the proposed mine development. The work was also used to support the submission to the Department of Water – Western Australia as part of the project approvals process.
