The design of soil covers as part of the remediation initiatives for mine waste facilities is common practice and more and more engineers are faced with designing these facilities. The design issues associated with these soil covers are complex and requires a good understanding of unsaturated Read more... about Comparative Study of Surface Flux Boundary Models to Design Soil Covers for Mine Waste Facilities

Soil cover systems are routinely used to reduce acid rock drainage (ARD) from mine waste rock dumps and tailings impoundments. A technology for the analysis, design, instrumentation and monitoring of barrier-type (oxygen limiting) and store/release type covers has rapidly developed and the Read more... about The Integrity of Cover Systems - An Update
