NTIS: PB/224-731 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :184 pages
This study provides an evaluation of the effectiveness of mine tailings ponds as a means of minimizing or reducing the flow of acids, dissolved solids, tailings, and heavy metal ions into the surrounding environment. It also suggests several types of treatments or methods that would reduce th discharge of undesirable materials from the tailings ponds. The appendix includes illustrations, tabular material, and computer printouts. Samples of tailings pond inflows, outflows, seepages, and stream water above and below the tailings ponds were collected from seven major operating mines in the Coeur d'Alene District.
