Techniques for Predicting Metal Mining Influenced Water is a must-read for planners, regulators, consultants, land managers, researchers, students, stakeholders, and others concerned about mining influenced water. Identifying potential mine wastes and their characteristics, and predicting their drainage quality are critical aspects of mine site design, operations, and closure planning. Failure to effectively conduct these evaluations for a mine site can result in environmental compliance issues that may create long-term financial liabilities. Basics of Metal Mining Influenced Water serves as an introduction to a series of six handbooks on technologies for management of metal mine and metallurgical process drainage. The other five handbooks are Mitigation of Metal Mining Influenced Water; Mine Pit Lakes: Characteristics, Predictive Modeling, and Sustainability; Geochemical Modeling for Mine Site Characterization and Remediation; Techniques for Predicting Metal Mining Influenced Water; and Sampling and Monitoring for the Mine Life Cycle.
