The purpose was to develop and field test new concepts for watertight mine seal and bulkhead construction applicable to abatement of acid mine water pollution. Laboratory research determined proper materials, equipment and techniques for constructing mine seals or bulkheads. Field testing was conducted on remedial grouting techniques for constructing mine seals or bulkheads. Two new processes were developed. One involved a technique of placing a plug or graded limestone aggregate in a mine drift or portal to neutralize an acid mine water discharge until a seal was effected. The second process consisted of remotely constructing a mine seal including rear and front bulkheads of a self-supporting, quick-setting sodium silicate cement specifically developed for this application. A filler material of expansive cement was used between the bulkheads to complete the seal. Field testing in West Virginia substantiated the feasibility of both processes when two aggregate and two bulkhead type seals were placed in abandoned mines which had drainage flows up to 58 gallons per minute. Cost of the seals are reported. (Author)
