A Review of Recent Strategies for Acid Mine

Recently, two alternative strategies for the management of AMD and mine tailings are gaining much attention: (1) prevention techniques, and (2) mine waste recycling. In this review, recent advances in AMD prevention techniques like oxygen barriers, utilization of bactericides, co-disposal and blending, and passivation of sulfide minerals are discussed. In addition, recycling of mine tailings as

Constructed Wetlands for Treating Acid Mine Drainage

Acid mine drainage occurs when sulfide oxidation in rock reacts with water and air creating hydroxide, sulfate, and hydrogen ions (Durkin Hermann 1994). The mineral that is responsible for this reaction, for both coal and metal mining situations, is pyrite (Wildeman . et al. 1991). Mining activities expose this mineral to weathering air, water, and microbial processes. The exposure causes ...
