This report presents results of the Mine Waste Technology Program Activity III, Project 8, Underground Mine Source Control Demonstration Project implemented and funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and jointly administered by EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Project 8 addresses EPA's technical issue of Mobile Toxic Constituents - Water - through a field demonstration at a remote, inactive underground mine. This project was undertaken to demonstrate the feasibility of injecting a water-activated, expansive, flexible, and closed-celled source control material (grout) into a rock fracture system to reduce or eliminate the flow of acid mine drainage (AMD) into the underground workings of an abandoned mine. The Miller Mine, located in the Big Belt Mountains of Broadwater County, Montana, was selected for the field demonstration.
