Acid mine drainage (AMD) is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest environmental problems facing the mining industry. AMD is characterised as having low pH (commonly 2 to 4), leading to elevated concentrations of metals such as cadmium, copper, iron, lead, and zinc.
2012-2-25 · Gautama-Acid Water Problem in Bukit Asam Coal Mine, South Sumatra, Indonesia To achieve the production of minimum 4.8 million tpy, which is the consumption of Suralaya power plant, there must be other pits developed in the existing concession area.
2003-3-4 · Acid mine drainage (AMD) from coal mining has been identiﬁed as the factor having the most widespread effect on water quality in the. 2NATIONAL WATER-QUALITY ASSESSMENT PROGRAM Figure 1. Loion of the study area, major cities, and streams in
Abandoned coal-mined lands are a worldwide concern due to their potential negative environmental impacts, including erosion and development of acid mine drainage. A field study investigated the use of a dry flue gas desulfurization product for reclamation of abandoned coal mined land in USA.
2005-12-2 · acid mine drainage (AMD) released into the environment (Hallberg and Johnson 2005a), as well as mines in Korea and India. In deep mining, large tunnels and slopes were cut down to coal

2001-7-9 · Frequency Distribution of the pH of Coal-Mine Drainage in Pennsylvania By Charles A. Cravotta III, Keith B.C. Brady, Arthur W. Rose, and Joseph B. Douds where contaminated mine runoff and mine dis- Frequency distribution of the pH of coal-mine discharges in Pennsylvania. A,
2017-12-6 · The process is known as acid mine drainage. It happens when certain substances (typically iron sulfide, FeS2, or fool’s gold) is oxidized after being exposed to air and water. It happens when certain substances (typically iron sulfide, FeS2, or fool’s gold) is oxidized after being exposed to air and water.
About half of the coal-mine discharges in Pennsylvania are acidic, with pH 5 (figure 3a; figure 3b).Generally, limestone or other calcareous strata that could neutralize acid are lacking or deficient at sites that produce acidic mine drainage (AMD).
2018-11-18 · Acid mine drainage, acid and metalliferous drainage (AMD), or acid rock drainage (ARD) is the outflow of acidic water from metal mines or coal mines. Acid rock drainage occurs naturally within some environments as part of the rock weathering process but is exacerbated by large-scale earth disturbances characteristic of mining and other large
Acid coal mine drainage in the Arctic This study is the first to evaluate seasonal trends in the release of AMD from high arctic coal mine waste rock. Runoff from an abandoned coal mine waste
2011-3-21 · The effects of coal-mine drainage on the water resources of the Tradewater River basin, in the Western Coal Field region of Kentucky, were evaluated (1) sulfuric acid; discharge of this mine water into streams leads to changes in water quality. By the 1940''s, surface mining of coal had become an important in dustry in the area. The
This study investigates acid mine drainage from an abandoned coal mine waste rock pile in Svalbard (78° N). A trench was dug to collect all water from the pile and water sampled daily to determine temporal variations in runoff chemistry and to calculate the release of dissolved metals (filtered to < 0.45 μm in size) from the pile during the
2005-12-2 · acid mine drainage (AMD) released into the environment (Hallberg and Johnson 2005a), as well as mines in Korea and India. In deep mining, large tunnels and slopes were cut
2002-12-20 · ‘Acid mine drainage’ from surface coal mines is a well-studied phenomenon in which run-off from coal mines have high concentrations of acid and heavy metals. This happens when exposed rocks containing pyrite, an iron sulphide, reacts with air and water to form sulphuric acid and dissolved iron – and the acid runoff can dissolve heavy
2014-7-26 · Acid mine waters (pH 3–5) at the closed Wangaloa coal mine have resulted from surface runoff and groundwater seepage in contact with pyrite-bearing waste rock piles. The low nutrient content, physical factors, and elevated boron levels, all coined with the low pH (down to pH 2) of most waste
The most widely recognized water pollution problem associated with coal is acid mine drainage. The potential for this same acidity exists for drainage from coal storage; however, the quantity and quality of the pile wastewater are highly variable 11 In acidic runoff from coal stockpiles this involves prevention of the mechanisms of acid
Coal pile drainage can be treated to remove metals by (1) lime or limestone neutralization,25 or sulfide precipitation followed by sedimentation,26 or (2) by sedimentation and filtration followed by ion exchange or reverse osmosis.27 These processes have been used to treat acid mine drainage, which is some- what similar to coal pile runoff.
