The Sulphur Bank Mercury Mine on the eastern shore of Clear Lake is the source of poor quality acid mine drainage seeping into Clear Lake. Lateral and vertical geochemical trends in ground water composition point to a number of redox reactions taking place as a function of subsurface water-rock interactions. An understanding of these reactions suggests opportunities to remediate the acid mine drainage through suppression of undesirable geochemical reactions. Two geochemically based remediation steps are proposed.
