Water is a precious and finite resource with high social, cultural, environmental and economic value. Access to water is a basic human right and reliable water supplies are vital for hygiene, livelihoods and the health of the environment.
Secure and economical access to water is also critical to our operations viability. Sandfire uses water in all aspects of our business; including exploration drilling, mining and processing our copper concentrate, dust suppression, and drinking water and use in our accommodation camps.
For more information about water management at each of our projects see our Sustainability Report.
