Summary

Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) refers to the flow of acidic water from both used and abandoned metal or coal mines. With case studies from North America, Europe, Asia, and developing countries that highlight various approaches to the problem of AMD, this important guide helps the reader understand the causes of acid mine drainage as well as how to predict, control, and prevent its formation. With a section on legal and policy issues, here is a practical guide to acid mine drainage prevention and remediation for environmental chemists, toxicologists, and scientists as well as geologists.
