A major issue with the disposal of sulphide-rich mine waste is the release of acid rock drainage (ARD). Often the course of action taken is ‘end-of-pipe’ treatment, however this action is undesirable due to high cost and continued liability. The environmental problem of ARD has long been Read more... about ARD in waste rock: preventive methods

Whilst issues such as cyanide, toxic metals, arsenic and acidity are generally given the highest priority in connection with the treatment of mine waste or effluent, they are not generally the most persistent. Volumetrically dissolved salt constituents such as sulphate, sodium and calcium are Read more... about Sulphate and salt minerals: the problem of treating mine waste
