Application of Aquifer Testing in Surface and Underground Coal Mines.
Proc Focus on Eastern Regional Ground Water Issues (13):541-55
The generation and transport of contaminated (acid) drainage from Appalachian coal mines depends heavily on the mechanisms by which water moves through surface mine spoils, underground mine openings, and the overlying fractured strata. To gain a better understanding of these flow mechanisms, slug tests, constant-discharge (pumping) tests, and chemical tracer tests have been employed at surface and underground mine sites.
