Cooling 65000 GPM geothermal water from 140°F to 38°F with 29°F wet bulb was realized at Barrick Goldstrike mine using two - 10 cell - cooling towers running in series. The paper describes the cooling process, the cooling tower design, and the hydraulic design given safe and flexible operation, the winter operation and the test results.
