Biorehabilitation of the acid mine drainage phenomenon by accelerated bioleaching of mine waste

Objective

To develop a protocol for the rehabilitation of acid mine drainage sites.


To accomplish the main objective, a number of secondary objectives must be fulfilled:

- definition of experimental areas
- characterization of geological and geotechnical nature of mines and spoil
- evaluation of leachate flows and chemical composition
- evaluation of environmental impact of acid mine drainage from area on river and
subsequent bioremedial activities
- geotechnical evaluation of material
- identification of natural mechanisms and kinetics (lab)
- enhancement of natural leaching (lab)
- leaching characteristics of various spoil
