The report provides information on processes, procedures, and methods to control pollution resulting from mining activities. The control methods included in the report are identified and described by way of brief text, generalized illustrations, and unit cost indications where possible. An extensive bibliography is appended with appropriate referencing in the description of each pollution control method. The publication has been prepared to be a general overview of available pollution control techniques. The described techniques should be considered as potential alternatives for specific mining pollution problems. The applicability of any method or combination of methods will depend upon many factors including climatic, geologic, engineering, economic, land use and aesthetic considerations. The usual case will be that a combination of techniques will be required to effect the elimination or reduction of the discharge of pollutants from mining sources. The control measures described are conceivably applicable to mining sources of pollutants regardless of whether those sources are categorized as 'point' or 'non-point' sources. The control measures and pertinent experience citations selected for inclusion result largely from studies and pollution control technology development that have occurred in association with coal mining pollution problems in the eastern U.S. Cost data are shown where appropriate to indicate a broad range of costs for individual control measures. Any use of quoted costs should be limited to gross estimation for planning purposes.
