Quintana Minerals is a US company that makes investments in certain mining projects. As part of a profitability analysis, Quintana granted a mandate Hydro-Ressources in order to conduct an analysis of dewatering requirements of ScoZinc project in Nova Scotia.
The analysis was to conduct a site visit and consult the available data. A major fault zone runs through the property and can cause problems during future operation. Moreover, major water leaks were one of the causes for the closure of the pit in the past.
