mine drainage damage prevention

What can be done to prevent or clean up acid mine drainage

Water flowing through active or abandoned mine sites can become polluted by the material being mined[1]. By far the most common mine drainage problem is that of acid mine drainage (AMD). Sulfuric acid is produced when water interacts with sulfur-bearing materials in the presence of oxygen and common bacteria[1]. The acidic water formed by this process can dissolve many metals in bioavailable

Acid Mine Drainage groundtruthtrekking

Summary. Acid mine drainage (AMD) refers to the outflow of acidic water from a mining site. In most cases, this acid comes primarily from oxidation of iron sulfide (FeS2, also known as pyrite or "fool's gold"), which is often found in conjunction with valuable metals. Acid mine drainage is a major problem with many hardrock mines, including almost all mines where the metal ore is bound up with

Can we mitigate environmental impacts from mining

Prevention must be addressed during exploration activities, before the beginning of newly-planned mining operations. In some cases, it may even be possible to prevent or reduce acid rock drainage in old or abandoned mining areas. Current and potential treatment approaches for acid rock drainage are similar to those already described.

Sep 01, 2020· Acid mine drainage (AMD) continues to be a concern in coal mining because it reduces surface water and groundwater quality (Verburg et al., 2009) and may perhaps persist for several years. In the U.S. only, AMD pollutes over 20,000 km of streams (Skousen et al., 2019). Blasting and dewatering exposes sulfide minerals, posing threats to environment.
