Sustainable development in mining means that mines need to safeguard resource values such as water quality in their immediate vicinity. Once aquatic resource values are properly defined, water quality objectives should be set for receiving waters.

If met, these ensure that the aquatic resource values are sustained. In general, objectives can be set. using criteria already in existence. in the mine development area, including mine effluent release points, and the receiving environment. Predicted effluent discharge water quality must be compared against regulatory and licensed thresholds (i.e., Metal Mining Effluent Regulations), and mitigation or treatment measures must be modelled and implemented to improve effluent water.
