Abstract
The potential for production of acidic discharges from mining activities is related to the pyritic concentration in the overburden and to the available alkalinity. Exposure of the pyritic material to weathering causes oxidation and the release of sulfuric acid. Source control techniques include pyrite segregation the selective burial, use of bacteriacides to retard bacterial catalysis, use of alkaline reagents to provide in-situ treatment, and the use of treatment systems to neutralize acidic drainages.
