Andersen -- Production to begin /Lorentzen-Olsen-Rendal/p/book/   In arctic regions, the ability to access water for production purposes can be a challenge due to permafrost and cold water bodies in arctic regions are shallow, and may freeze solid during the winter, rendering water access from surface sources impossible during winter months. Mines may also have difficulty accessing water via
