this includes the residue of gold, silver, and copper ore mining and processing in the early 1900s near cooke city, montana, just downstream of the creek's headwaters. toxicity tests, using surrogate test species, and analyses of metals in water, sediments, and macroinvertebrate tissue were conducted from 1993 to 1995.
“in the manufacture of super-phosphate fertilizer, phosphate rock is acidulated with sulfuric acid, and the fluoride content of the rock evolves as volatile silicofluorides. in the past, much of this volatile material was vented to the atmosphere, contributing heavily to pollution of the air and land surrounding the manufacturing site.
we show that the unequal distribution of environmental impacts and compensation payments caused by the mine has created conflicts between landowners and the mine, and among landowners. these conflicts are at present largely nonviolent.
“by the company's own admission, the project is an experiment with unknown environmental and social consequences and uncertain profits. the past few months have really shown the extent to which financiers and our own communities in png reject this project,” he said in a statement .

a post audit for a reactive transport model used to evaluate acid mine drainage treatment systems is presented herein. the post audit is based on a paired synoptic approach in which hydrogeochemical data are collected at low (existing conditions) and elevated (following treatment) ph. data obtained under existing, low-ph conditions are used for calibration, and the resultant model is used to
acacia albida, acacia luederitzii, and acacia tortilis are dominant acacia species in botswana and have the potential to rehabilitate the heavy metal degraded environment. to establish this claim, experiments to assess the influence of mycorrhizal inoculation and fly ash amendments on the survival, growth and heavy metal accumulation of these species in mine tailings were conducted.
it has been shown that discharges from coal mines can have elevated concentrations of co2 due to sulfuric acid-driven dissolution of carbonate rock. in this study, we compared three methods for calculating the export dissolved inorganic carbon (dic) and the evaluation of co2 from an abandoned-mine discharge in west virginia.
