Abstract: 

Increasing the pit depth and opening the 10th bench, groundwater are flowing in GOL-E-GOHAR IRON ORE MINE area. The existence of water in the pit causes several problems such as: machinery transport, increasing of blasting costs, electrical and etc. problems. Because of increasing the usage of water in the expansion plants and the limitation of water resources, several ways for providing water were studied such as: the possibility of drilling new wells in the catchments area, purchasing wells, transferring water from Sirjan or nearest Dam and desalting of mine water. The latest option causes not only to recovery the no drinking water but also to dry blasting holes to reduce blasting costs to 1/6. Using 409 point between soil and rock contact in Gol-E-Gohar mine, position of 7 deep wells were determined in the pit. Besides initial studies were done for desalting saline wastewater to supplying part of necessity water which had acceptable results.
