A large percentage of the eastern coal mined today is washed and processed to remove impurities and increase quality. The wastes from the preparation process pose a serious disposal problem. The study investigated acid and heavy metal ion concentrations in water passing through refuse piles, suspended solids in waters from refuse areas and slurry ponds, noxious gases from oxidation and fires in refuse piles, and airborne particulates from dry exposed refuse surfaces.
