Acid mine drainage formation, control and treatment

Jan 01, 2019· Introduction: acid mine drainage formation Acid mine drainage (AMD) forms when sulfide minerals deep in the earth are exposed during mining, highway construction, and other large-scale excavations. Upon exposure to water and oxygen, most sulfide minerals oxidize to form sulfuric acid, metal ions and sulfate, which, if untreated, enter surface

Acid mine drainage formation and arsenic mobility under

Acid mine drainage (AMD) formation and toxic arsenic (As) contamination are serious environmental problems encountered worldwide. In this study, we investigated the crucial roles played by common secondary mineral phases formed during the natural weathering of pyrite-bearing wastes-soluble salts (melanterite, FeSO 4 ·7H 2 O) and metal oxides (hematite, Fe 2 O 3)-on AMD formation and As

Formation of Acid Mine Drainage in Sulphide Ore Deposits

Acid mine drainage (AMD) is the product of the natural oxidation of sulphide minerals. The simultaneous influence of water, oxygen and indigenous microorganisms represents the necessary conditions for AMD formation. The occurrence of AMD is associated mainly with the presence of sulphide minerals in the polymetallic, coal and lignite deposits.

Simultaneous suppression of acid mine drainage formation

Pyrite (FeS 2), the most common sulfide mineral in nature, plays an important role in the formation of acid mine drainage (AMD), one of the most serious environmental problems after the closure of mines and mineral processing operations.Likewise, arsenopyrite (FeAsS) is an important sulfide mineral because its dissolution releases toxic arsenic (As) into the environment.

(PDF) A critical stage in the formation of acid mine

The formation of acid mine drainage causes the acidification of streams and tremendous damage to aquatic ecosystems (Blowes & Jambor, 1990). Therefore, it is extremely important to improve our understanding of the ability of A. ferrooxidans to colonize pyrite, a precursor to the generation of acid mine drainage (AMD).

Acid mine drainage microbewiki

Aug 26, 2010· Acid mine drainage (AMD) occurs when metal sulfides, most commonly pyrite, are exposed to and react with air and water. When water flows over or through sulfur-bearing mine tailings, a chemical reaction occurs between the water and rocks resulting in metal-rich water. AMD typically has a bright orange, yellow, or bownish-red color to it.

What can be done to prevent or clean up acid mine drainage

Water flowing through active or abandoned mine sites can become polluted by the material being mined[1]. By far the most common mine drainage problem is that of acid mine drainage (AMD). Sulfuric acid is produced when water interacts with sulfur-bearing materials in the presence of oxygen and common bacteria[1]. The acidic water formed by this process can dissolve many metals in bioavailable

Constructed Wetlands for Treating Acid Mine Drainage

Acid mine drainage occurs when sulfide oxidation in rock reacts with water and air creating hydroxide, sulfate, and hydrogen ions (Durkin & Hermann 1994). The mineral that is responsible for this reaction, for both coal and metal mining situations, is pyrite (Wildeman . et al

EPA What is Acid Mine Drainage

Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) is currently the main pollutant of surface water in the mid-Atlantic region. AMD is caused when water flows over or through sulfur-bearing materials forming solutions of net acidity. AMD comes mainly from abandoned coal mines and currently active mining. AMD degrades more than 4,500 stream miles
