Sanchez-Andrea, "Sulfur Reduction in Acid Rock Drainage Environments," Environmental Science and Technology, vol.
The mine uses a quick lime slurry to treat reclaimed tailings water and acid rock drainage, removing dissolved metals as a solid.
The tailings, which were piled up into three massive stacks, contain pyrite and other metals in them that causes acid rock drainage. Over the years, the drainage had percolated into the ground-water and upwelled into Railroad Creek.
to strengthen the Environmental Management Bureau monitoring process with respect to such issues as mining tailings, waste rocks and acid rock drainage.
Accordingly, data on the percentage of mine sites where acid rock drainage is predicted to occur, actively mitigated, and under treatment or remediation is likely to prove useful to decision makers.
* Geochemical--including karst and acid rock drainage
The technology can improve profitability and performance while recovering metals from pregnant leach solution, bleed streams, recirculation and raffinate, drain-down and acid rock drainage, spent processing solutions, and smelter or refinery blowdown.
Among the well-documented impacts of mining is acid rock drainage, a chemical chain reaction created when discarded rock and tailings are exposed to air and water.
