Abstract
The waste water treatment system of the Anaconda Mining Company in Butte, Montana, was physically and chemically characterized, modeled on a computer and investigated with respect to alternate systems for economic heavy metal recovery. The system involves lime addition to a mixture of acid underground copper sulfide mine water, acid effluent water from the iron-induced precipitation of copper from acid leach solution, and basic suspensions of solid effluent from a concentrator plant. The treatment system was simulated in the laboratory and modeled on a computer. The computer program is capable of accurately predicting the amount of lime required to reach a desired effluent water. Preliminary research indicated the usefulness of electroprecipitation as a means of recovering the valuable metal load and providing an EPA acceptable effluent.
