An essential component in the evaluation of a mineral deposit or a mine development project is the consideration of environmental impact, particularly the leaching of deleterious elements such as As and many of the transition metals or of Acid Rock Drainage (ARD) generation. A major part of this Read more... about Geochemical Predictions of Metal Leaching and Acid Generation: Geologic Controls and Baseline Assessment

In the assessment of acid rock drainage and metal leaching potential for a mine the standard approach is to assess each lithogy, in conjunction with alteration and/or ore type. These variations in lithogies are then referred to as material types and further sub-classified into either reactive or Read more... about The Use of NSR During the Fedorovo ARDML Evaluation Program
