Decant calculations and groundwater: surface water interaction in an opencast coal mining environment
(University of the Free State, 2010-11)
English: Acid mine drainage is by far the most significant long term groundwater quality impact associated with both opencast and underground coal mining, in both a local and international context. The modern day ...
A holistic hydrogeological environmental site risk assessment methodology for the fertilizer industry in South Africa
(University of the Free State, 2013-04)
English: There has been a definitive increase in environmental legislation over the past decade. These new environmental laws established principles such as duty of care and the polluter pay principle. Numerous companies ...
An evaluation of the suitability of different electrode arrays for geohydrological studies in Karoo rocks using electrical resistivity tomography
(University of the Free State, 2013-01)
The suitability of different electrodes arrays used during electrical resistivity tomography surveys for geohydrological studies in the Karoo rocks is evaluated through theoretical considerations, numerical modelling and ...
Study of flow and transport in fractured granitic rock
(University of the Free State, 2012-05)
The hydrogeology of the Tono basin, Japan, is strongly influenced by the hydraulic properties of faults, especially the main Tsukiyoshi fault, which extends through the centre of the assessment area and has an E-W strike. ...
Flow characteristics of groundwater systems: an investigation of hydraulic parameters
(University of the Free State, 2011-05)
The Institute for Groundwater Studies (IGS) undertook a groundwater surface water interaction project under the funding of Water Research Commission starting July 2010. The Modder River was identified as an appropriate ...
Designing a dewatering plan for the Ruashi mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo
(University of the Free State, 2013-09)
This dissertation describes the results of field based investigations on groundwater flow at Ruashi Mine located in Katanga Province of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The core objectives of the study were to simulate ...
Coupled flow in groundwater systems : the study of bulkflow parameters
(University of the Free State, 2011-08)
This study was aimed at studying bulkflow parameters in groundwater systems at littoral zone of the Modder River. In this thesis, all the aspects were synthesised and exemplified by incorporating a multidisciplinary ...
Investigating the possibility of targeting major dolerite intrusives to supplement municipal water supply in Bloemfontein: a geophysical approach
(University of the Free State, 2017-02)
The city of Bloemfontein is currently relying on surface water sources for its potable water supply. However, Bloemfontein is located in a semi-arid area, which means that the surface water resources are unreliable and ...
