Constantia understands the importance local people place on the Bonaparte River and its water resources. We are committed to ensuring that water quality, water flows and fish habitat in the Bonaparte Watershed will be protected and sustained throughout our exploration activities at the Maggie Project.
As a result of community input gathered during our early engagement efforts and consistent with our principles of Responsible Mineral Development, Constantia is conducting a water quality sampling and monitoring program in the area before, during and after our drilling program.
Constantia monitors surface and groundwater quality to ensure our exploration activities at Maggie have no impact on the Bonaparte River or water resources. Water quality sampling was initiated one year in advance of the drilling program.
Surface Water & Groundwater Quality Sampling
Constantia recycles and reuses water on site at the Maggie Project in order to reduce the amount of water used during the drill program. The company also collects drill cuttings in custom, closed containment tanks ensuring zero discharge to the environment. Drill cuttings are then removed from site, processed and transported to a proper disposal area offsite.
Constantia utilizes a closed loop recirculation system to reduce the amount of water consumed and to capture drill cuttings. Conserving water and removing drill cuttings from site helps the company achieve its goal of protecting the environment and enhancing sustainability.
