Nowhere is the conflict between economic progress and environmental quality more apparent than in the mineral extraction industries. The latter half of the 20th century saw major advances in the reclamation technologies. However, mine water pollution problems have not been addressed. In many cases, polluted mine water long outlives the life of the mining operation. As the true cost of long-term water treatment responsibilities has become apparent, interest has grown in the technologies that would decrease the production of contaminated water and make its treatment less costly. This is the first book to address the mine water issue head-on. The authors explain the complexities of mine water pollution by reviewing the hydrogeological context of its formation, and provide an up-to-date presentation of prevention and treatment technologies. The book will be a valuable reference for all professionals who encounter polluted mine water on a regular or occasional basis.

Minewater Treatment - Technology, Application and Policy, was produced based on the findings of the research to aid in the selection, design and implementation of the most appropriate treatment techniques for particular minewater discharges. Much work has been carried out in recent decades concerning minewater treatment, both in the UK and worldwide. Many different bodies and organizations are involved in developing minewater treatment processes and schemes. Minewater Treatment addresses the need for a single source of state-of-the-art information that draws all the latest research material together.Key features of the book include: a full literature review of minewater treatment throughout the world; an overview of relevant legislation and policy in a global context; a review of currently available methods for treating minewater worldwide; a site specific inventory of minewater treatment schemes within the UK, including compilation of available monitoring data and assessment of performance; a review of emerging and innovative minewater treatment technologies and consideration of related academic research within the UK; a comprehensive list of active and innovative minewater treatment technologies that are not currently compiled in a book or other review publication; a detailed summary and recommendations section assessing the applicability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of minewater treatment schemes. Relevant scientific subject matter is presented in a concise, easily accessible manner to assist with the objective assessment of the progress made to date.Heavily illustrated with many colour photographs, the book allows best use to be made of the collective experience of minewater treatment practitioners throughout the UK, whilst at the same time placing the UK experience within a global context. An invaluable reference work for mining companies, consultants, planning officers, environmental research scientists, environmental agencies, water utilities and regulatory bodies, Minewater Treatment is a definitive source of information on minewater treatment technologies and will help facilitate the selection of the most appropriate technique required to tackle particular minewater discharge problems.

Disasters and Minewater: Good Practice and Prevention draws together all of the major minewater catastrophes that have occurred over the last half century. It examines incidents to find useful and positive information of great value that could prevent future disasters. Practical experience provides many lessons in respect of the causes of minewater incidents where lack of adhesion to good practice is principally to blame. Disasters and Minewater: Good Practice and Prevention is of particular interest to students of mining, civil engineering and environmental engineering. It is an invaluable resource for mining engineers, geotechnical engineers environmental engineers and disaster relief professionals and consultants.

This book is not designed to be an exhaustive work on mine wastes. It aims to serve undergraduate students who wish to gain an overview and an understanding of wastes produced in the mineral industry. An introductory textbook addressing the science of such wastes is not available to students despite the importance of the mineral industry as a resource, wealth and job provider. Also, the growing imp- tance of the topics mine wastes, mine site pollution and mine site rehabilitation in universities, research organizations and industry requires a textbook suitable for undergraduate students. Until recently, undergraduate earth science courses tended to follow rather classical lines, focused on the teaching of palaeontology, cryst- lography, mineralogy, petrology, stratigraphy, sedimentology, structural geology, and ore deposit geology. However, today and in the future, earth science teachers and students also need to be familiar with other subject areas. In particular, earth science curriculums need to address land and water degradation as well as rehabili- tion issues. These topics are becoming more important to society, and an increasing number of earth science students are pursuing career paths in this sector. Mine site rehabilitation and mine waste science are examples of newly emerging disciplines. This book has arisen out of teaching mine waste science to undergraduate and graduate science students and the frustration at having no appropriate text which documents the scienti?c fundamentals of such wastes.

Excerpt from Mine Drainage, Pumps, Etc Dear sir: In pursuance of your instructions, I have prepared this Bulletin of the State Mining Bureau, treating of the most important applications of water-raising machinery for the drainage of mines. It has been my aim to make this a short, popular exposition of methods, constructions, and principles involved in the machines used in the extremely varied conditions of mining on the Pacific Coast and, in view of the modern improvements and facilities in the transmission of power, which may make advantageous the use of machines not now employed in mine drainage, these have also been given consideration. The amount of ground covered in the treatment of each subject has necessarily been limited. The principles governing the design and Oper ation of apparatus have, however, been given at some length, in order to render them clear. Only where absolutely necessary has use been made of mathematical expressions, and these most simple. The old Cornish and other non-rotative engines applied to the so called Cornish system, which are to-day practically obsolete, have received only the brief notice due from the standpoint of historical reference, and where necessary to explain motives for improvement of methods. As akin to the general subject, water-raising machines applied to other uses than mine drainage are incidentally mentioned; and in an appendix will be found some remarks on the appliances used in irrigation and land drainage. Among the difficulties encountered in preparing a work of this nature, and which cause delay in its completion, are those of obtaining correct data with reference to the practical working of apparatus, and recon oiling contradictory statements of results.
