Kristin Salzsauler to Co-Present on Mine Water and Mine Waste Characterization using Machine Learning Concepts at 2022 British Columbia MEND ML/ARD Annual Workshop

Kristin Salzsauler, P.Geo., (British Columbia) will present "Optimizing Mine Water and Mine Waste Management Using Machine Learning Approaches (and Data You Already Collect)" at the 2022 Annual British Columbia MEND ML/ARD Workshop at Simon Fraser University Campus in Vancouver, British Columbia, at 1:00 on November 30, 2022.

Kristin's co-presenter is Tom Meuzelaar of Life Cycle Geo. Kristin will be joined at the workshop by Geosyntec colleagues Silvia Mancini, Ph.D., P.Geo.; Dan LaPorte, P.GEO; Andrew Holmes, Ph.D., P.Eng.; and Rachel James (Ontario).

Kristin Salzsauler is a Senior Principal Geochemist based in British Columbia with more than 18 years of experience leading characterizations of mine wastes and finding innovative solutions to manage them. She conducts forensic mineralogical and geochemical investigations and predicts and manages water quality.

The British Columbia MEND ML/ARD Workshop was created to address both the limited long-term operating experience for most ML/ARD prediction and mitigation measures and the need for a cost-effective technical forum where challenges and field-scale results can be presented and discussed. Each year, the workshop invites leading practitioners and researchers from British Columbia, Canada, and abroad to share their knowledge and provide fresh insight into how the toolbox of technologies and practices to address ML/ARD issues can be improved. The workshop also enables the sharing of experiences and productive dialogue between people from similar and differing communities of interest.

Presentation Description

  • Introduction to machine learning concepts and related advanced statistical methods for interpreting large, complex geochemical data sets
  • How can we leverage large environmental datasets and a machine learning approach to provide value to industry?
  • Case examples will be provided for how to use data commonly collected by multiple stakeholders in the mine planning, permitting and operation teams to improve mine waste and mine water management outcomes.
