Abstract
This study concentrated on the analyses of two potential means of partially inundating abandoned segments of active underground mines to reduce acid formation. Seal construction techniques were taken through five logical steps and the design details of both low-wall dams and section seals were discussed. The study showed that both concepts are feasible only in certain mines where the geologic- hydrologic-physical makeup is suitable to contain a mine pool. Low- wall dams in particular were found to have extremely limited applicability as a means of pollution reduction. Section seals, while clearly dependent upon site specific conditions, have a somewhat broader range of utility and are more effective in pollution reduction.
