Inhibiting acid mine drainage throughout the mine life cycle
The technical knowledge and practical experience accumulated by industry and others in abating acid mine drainage (AMD) is being proactively applied at every phase of the mine life cycle. This paper traces the mine life cycle from exploration to post closure monitoring and maintenance, and reviews AMD abatement measures that have become an integral component of exploration and
mining activities. Attention is increasingly being given to evaluating AMD potential as part of exploration work, and...
