List of conducted tracer tests

 

Explanation

The following table lists all mining influenced water (MIW) and acid mine drainge (AMD) tracer tests that I have carried out at home and abroad since 1992. Not listed are salt tracer tests to determine the flow rate in water bodies. The results of these and all other published tracer tests in mines worldwide can be found here.
