Mitigation of Metal Mining Influenced Water is the "how to fix it" volume in a series of six handbooks on technologies for managing metal mine and metallurgical process influenced water.

Unlike other texts that focus exclusively on acid drainage from coal mines, this comprehensive series examines both acidic and neutral pH waters from metal mining and metallurgical processes that may impact the environment. The authors take a holistic approach by considering all aspects of the mine life cycle, from planning and design to closure.

In this book you'll learn how mining influenced water concerns can be prevented or reduced by disrupting the geochemical relationship that contributes to the release of metals and/or acidity. Industry experts provide insights into understanding a mine's physical environment and how it can influence waste and drainage quality. They outline key issues designers must address, including involving stakeholders who may be affected long after the mine closes.

Case histories offer valuable planning and design considerations by illustrating what works and what doesn't. You'll also benefit from a thorough examination of mitigating technologies in a host of mining and processing situations, as well as the latest arsenal of waste treatment options.

Mitigation of Metal Mining Influenced Water is a must-read for planners, regulators, consultants, land mangers, students, researchers, and others concerned about the environmentally sound management of metal mine and metallurgical processing wastes and drainage quality.
