Résumé partiel
the presence of valuable coal resources as well as exploit- abie quantites of building stones and industrial minerals (such as Manganese, Copper ores) had been proved in addi- . tion to the pre-existing Mn-mines. Underground water in Sinai represents a major water resource. Sinai is rich in underground water, but the available water is, however, unsuitable for the develop- ment of human life in this arid region. Sinai is consider- ed as one of the important mining areas in Egypt. Recently, However, mining of the major coal seams in Oun-Mosa district is hindered by the presence of excessive amounts of underground water. Underground water is present under relatively high pressure in the overlying geological form tion. Drainage of this water to reduce the water table level below that of the workings is necessary to enable the exploitation of the proved coal reserves. For a proposed rate of drainage of about 30 000 m3/ day against a total head of about 500 m, the drainage process will be very expensive as it necessitates an energy consumption of about 60 000 kw / day. It is thought that the expensive costs of the proposed drainage’ proces1s can be . partially saved by evaluating the pumped w+er to be economically uti.’ r.z ed for the mining operations and other life activities in the locality The tests carried in Ain-Shams UnLversity on the water samples obtained from different wells in Oun-Mosa have shown that there is a great need for the treatment of the available brackish and saline water to render it suitable for the different life purposes. This fact gives the impetus for the present research work to find out a most suitable technique for such treatment.
