Provides the tools needed to analyze and solve acid drainageproblems
Featuring contributions from leading experts in science andengineering, this book explores the complex biogeochemistry of acidmine drainage, rock drainage, and acid sulfate soils. It describeshow to predict, prevent, and remediate the environmental impact ofacid drainage and the oxidation of sulfides, offering the latestsampling and analytical methods. Moreover, readers will discovernew approaches for recovering valuable resources from acid minedrainage, including bioleaching.
Acid Mine Drainage, Rock Drainage, and Acid Sulfate Soilsreviews the most current findings in the field, offering newinsights into the underlying causes as well as new tools tominimize the harm of acid drainage:
* Part I: Causes of Acid Mine Drainage, Rock Drainage andSulfate Soils focuses on the biogeochemistry of aciddrainage in different environments.
* Part II: Assessment of Acid Mine Drainage, Rock Drainageand Sulfate Soils covers stream characterization, aquaticand biological sampling, evaluation of aquatic resources, and someunusual aspects of sulfide oxidation.
* Part III: Prediction and Prevention of AcidDrainage discusses acid-base accounting, kinetic testing,block modeling, petrology, and mineralogy studies. It also explainsrelevant policy and regulations.
* Part IV: Remediation of Acid Drainage, Rock Drainage andSulfate Soils examines both passive and active cleanupmethods to remediate acid drainage.
Case studies from a variety of geologic settings highlightvarious approaches to analyzing and solving acid drainage problems.Replete with helpful appendices and an extensive list of webresources, Acid Mine Drainage, Rock Drainage, and Acid SulfateSoils is recommended for mining engineers and scientists,regulatory officials, environmental scientists, land developers,and students.
