  Title World first: Full-scale BioSure plant commissioned Type Journal Article
  Year 2006 Publication Water Wheel Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 5 Issue 3 Pages 19-21  
  Keywords Waste Management and Pollution Policy geographical abstracts: human geography environmental planning (70 11 5) wastewater waste facility mine waste gold mine sewage treatment  
  Abstract ERWAT's Ancor Wastewater Treatment Works on the Far East Rand commissioned a 10 Ml/day full-scale plant to treat toxic mine-water from the Grootvlei gold mine using primary sewage sludge. The R15-million plant is treating sulphate rich acid mine drainage using the Rhodes BioSURE Process. First, the pumped mine-water is treated at a high-density separation (HDS) plant to remove iron and condition pH levels. Then it is pumped two km via a newly-constructed 10 Ml capacity pipeline to the Ancor works. This mine-water is then mixed together with primary sewage sludge in a mixing tank from where a splitter box directs the material to eight biological sulphate reducing reactors or bioreactors. The overflow water which is rich in sulphide is pumped through the main pump station to another mixing box. Here, iron slurry is mixed with the material before it is again divided between four reactor clarifiers for sulphide removal. The overflow water, now containing reduced sulphate levels and virtually no sulphide is pumped to Ancor's biofilters for removal of remaining Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and ammonia following the conventional sewage treatment process for eventual release into the Blesbokspruit.

  Title Solid wastes management in sulphide mines: From waste characterisation to safe closure of disposal sites Type Journal Article
  Year 2003 Publication Minerals and Energy Raw Materials Report Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 18 Issue 4 Pages 25-35  
  Keywords Waste Management and Pollution Policy Pollution and waste management non radioactive geographical abstracts: human geography environmental planning (70 11 5) geological abstracts: environmental geology (72 14 2) waste disposal waste management solid waste mining industry acid mine drainage Europe Eurasia  
  Abstract Environmentally compatible Waste Management schemes employed by the European extractive industry for the development of new projects, and applied in operating sulphide mines, are presented in this study. Standard methodologies used to assess the geotechnical and geochemical properties of the solid wastes stemming from mining and processing of sulphidic metal ores are firstly given. Based on waste properties, the measures applied to ensure the environmentally safe recycling and disposal of sulphidic wastes are summarised. Emphasis is given on the novel techniques developed to effectively prevent and mitigate the acid drainage phenomenon from sulphidic mine wastes and tailings. Remediation measures taken to minimise the impact from waste disposal sites in the post-closure period are described.

  Title Acid Mine Drainage (AMD): causes, treatment and case studies Type Journal Article
  Year 2006 Publication J. Cleaner Prod. Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 14 Issue 12-13 Pages 1139-1145  
  Keywords contamination effluents government industrial pollution industrial waste mining industry research initiatives wastewater treatment acid mine drainage environmental problems mining industry government research initiatives contamination civil engineering mining quarrying activity environmental impact acid generating process acid drainage migration prevention measures effluent treatment chemical treatment biological treatment Manufacturing and Production Entwässern=Gelände Umweltbelastung Bauingenieurwesen Bergbau Sickerwasser Steinbruch Säureproduktion Neutralisation Bergbauindustrie technische Forschung Ingenieurswissenschaft Steinbruchabbau Acid Mine Drainage Mining Environmental Chemical and biological treatment  
  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.
