Abstract
A 3-year study was conducted to evaluate the problems and benefits of using vegetation to stabilize tailing from a potential Minnesota copper-nickel milling operation with the major objective of developing a feasible method for revegetation. Secondary objectives were to (1) describe the physical and chemical characteristics of copper tailing and determine the potential influence of those characterisitcs on plant growth, (2) identify alternative plant species and soil management techniques useful in the revegetation of copper-nickel tailing, (3) evaluate the effects of vegetation establishment on the liberation of potentially toxic metals in tailing drainage water, and (4) assess the accumulation of potentially toxic metals in vegetation grown in copper-nickel tailing.
