Managing water in the Mining Cycle

Understanding the Fate and Effects of Metal Contaminants
Watersheds in mineralized zones may contain more than one mine, each of which has the potential to contribute to acidity and the metal load of a stream, resulting in a complex downstream environment. Read more about research to better understand the fate and effects of metal contamination and other pollutants in receiving environments.

Improving water recovery and recycling
An integrated approach to water management takes into consideration water use, treatment and recycling. Learn how an integrated approach can help reduce pressure on the environment, help reduce costs, and help improve recovery of valuable metals and other chemical components during the milling process.
