Abstract
This study was conducted to identify, evaluate, and develop procedures to minimize or eliminate safety hazards associated with the electrokinetic dewatering process such as toxic and volatile gas emissions, electrical shock, accidental detonation of explosives, electromechanical corrosion of metal appurtenances, and possibly others. The study was based on pertinent literature, existing safety regulations, interviews with mine personnel, physical and mechanical properties of the electrokinetic dewatering process, and physical characteristics of the material to be dewatered. The electrokinetic dewatering process was described and potential safety hazards were identified and evaluated. Procedures and/or safety regulations were developed to minimize or eliminate the potential hazards. It was recommended that the electrokinetic dewatering process, when used in deep metal mines, be properly monitored to obtain additional information on other potential hazards.
