Modelling of Contaminant Release from Mining Waste Deposits

Abstract:

Article Preview

The release of contaminants from mining wastes containing sulphide minerals is addressed. The paper shows the application of a methodology, Performance Assessment (PA), to the long-term behaviour of waste deposits. The aim of the paper is to address the different processes that occur in deposits for mining waste. These processes are applied to one study case; drainage water from a waste rock dump at the Aitik mine in northern Sweden.
