Abstract This paper describes Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) generation and its associated technical issues. As AMD is recognized as one of the more serious environmental problems in the mining industry, its causes, prediction and treatment have become the focus of a number of research initiatives commissioned by governments, the mining industry, universities and research establishments, with additional inputs from the general public and environmental groups. In industry, contamination from AMD is associated with construction, civil engineering mining and quarrying activities. Its environmental impact, however, can be minimized at three basic levels: through primary prevention of the acid-generating process; secondary control, which involves deployment of acid drainage migration prevention measures; and tertiary control, or the collection and treatment of effluent.

Title Treatment of acid mine drainage containing iron ions and arsenic for utilization of the sludge Type Journal Article
Year 2006 Publication Sohn International Symposium Advanced Processing of Metals and Materials, Vol 9 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages (down) 373-381
Keywords mine water treatment arsenic biotechnology filtration iron membranes microorganisms mining industry oxidation sludge treatment acid mine drainage arsenic ion sludge treatment Horobetsu mine Hokkaido Japan ferrous iron membrane filter pore size arsenite solutions microbial oxidation As Fe Manufacturing and Production
Abstract An acid mine drainage in abandoned Horobetsu mine in Hokkaido, Japan, contains arsenic and iron ions; total arsenic ca.10ppm, As(III) ca. 8.5ppm, total iron 379ppm, ferrous iron 266ppm, pH1.8. Arsenic occurs mostly as arsenite (As (III)) or arsenate (As (V)) in natural water. As(III) is more difficult to be remove than As(V), and it is necessary to oxidize As(III) to As(V) for effective removal. 5mL of the mine drainage or its filtrate through the membrane filter (pore size 0.45 mu m) were added to arsenite solutions (pH1.8) with the concentration of 5ppm. After the incubation of 30 days, As(III) was oxidized completely with the addition of the mine drainage while the oxidation did not occur with the addition of filtrate, indicating the microbial oxidation of As(III). In this paper, we have investigated the microbial oxidation of As(III) in acid water below pH2.0.

Title Zeolites and their application in the decontamination of mine waste water Type Journal Article
Year 2006 Publication Informacion Tecnologica Abbreviated Journal
Volume 17 Issue 6 Pages (down) 111-118
Keywords adsorption decontamination effluents industrial waste ion exchange metallurgical industries metallurgy mining mining industry porosity wastewater treatment zeolites zeolites decontamination mine waste water genesis porosity adsorption ionic exchange mineral metallurgical effluents mercury pollution artisan mining activities heavy metals removal metal mining effluents mercury vapors ovens fire amalgams Manufacturing and Production
Abstract This paper describes the genesis, structure and classification of natural zeolites, including their most relevant properties such as porosity, adsorption and ionic exchange. The use of natural zeolites in the treatment of effluents containing heavy metals is reviewed based on current literature. These uses are focused on mineral-metallurgical effluents and mercury pollution related to artisan mining activities. The study shows that natural zeolites are efficient in removal of heavy metals in metal mining effluents, can be produced and improved at a low cost, and can also be used to adsorb mercury vapors from ovens used to fire amalgams.
