Abstract
The Bureau of Mines is currently evaluating reclamation practices in terms of their effect on acid production. Site-related factors, identified prior to reclamation, appear to be critical in abatement of acid production. Recent developments in acid mine drainage control, such as the use of soluble alkaline materials and the application of anionic surfactants to inhibit iron-oxidizing bacteria, are currently in use at active mining operations and are potentially applicable to abandoned mine lands. In addition, the possibility of using vegetation, mulches, and soil amendments to limit the oxygen diffusion into pyritic material is currently being investigated for potential long-term control of acid mine drainage.
