The report evaluates the utility of geophysical techniques in detection and monitoring of acid mine drainage contamination from mine wastes. The document includes a review and summary of literature on geophysical methods that may be useful in evaluating migration of the high specific conductance contaminants in groundwater. The report also briefly discusses the geochemistry of acid mine drainage, the relationship between ion concentration and specific conductance, empirical relationships that are available to predict the resistivity of soil/rock, and formulas for determining the optimum line spacing for geophysical surveys and the associated probabilities.
