Nicola has a degree in geology from the University of Portsmouth and has previous experience in working in the mining and waste management business sectors.
She is responsible for maintaining ICL’s ISO9001 quality standard and has responsibility for all aspects of Itasca software codes and administrative support for ICL’s own software InSite, as well as the day to day running of the office.
The Fifth International Itasca Symposium will be held at the University of Vienna (Austria). The Symposium will features the application of Itasca software for solving engineering and scientific challenges in geomechanics, hydrogeology, microseismicity, and more.
Mr. Flynn is an applied physicist with a diverse technical background with over 20 years of experience in instrumentation and measurement systems, with a focus on acoustic emission and ultrasonic monitoring for the past 8 years.
He is the General Manager of the ICL office and also the product manager for ICL’s range of hardware products.
Its experienced staff of hydrogeologists, geologists, geochemists,
and engineers enables Itasca to address virtually all aspects of mining
hydrogeology, including dewatering, depressurization, water quality,
water balances, mine-water disposal, water supply, water management, and
field investigations. With offices situated around the world, Itasca
possesses first-hand knowledge of the particular mining challenges in
each local region. Itasca pool of expertise covers the gamut of mine
operations, from hard to soft rock mining in both open pits and
underground mines. Itasca hydrogeologists and engineers have taught
mining hydrogeology short courses at annual meetings of the Society for
Mining Metallurgy and Exploration (SME) and for mining clients around
One of Itasca’s strengths is the ability to effectively design and
optimize mine dewatering and depressurization systems. The company
designs and supervises the installation of dewatering wells,
sub-horizontal drain holes, drainage galleries, and seepage-collection
systems for surface and underground mines located around the world.
In additional to the operational hydrogeologic aspect, Itasca also
performs work related to the environmental and permitting aspects of
mining projects. Experience in these areas ranges from the baseline
characterization of hydrogeologic conditions and mined materials (waste
rock, tailings, and ore) to the technical evaluation of potential or
observed water-resource impacts for the National Environmental Policy
Act (NEPA) and/or State permits, such as drawdown of the groundwater
table, subsidence, and water-quality impacts.
Itasca has developed a sophisticated, three-dimensional, finite-element groundwater flow model code called MINEDW™ specifically for the evaluation of complex mining water-related issues. MINEDW is
currently being used worldwide at many large-scale open-pit and
underground mines. Depending on a client’s requirements, the
widely-known MODFLOW and FEFLOW numerical codes are also used.
