Abstract
The Midnite Mine is an inactive, hard-rock uranium mine in Stevens County WA. Oxidation of sulfide-containing minerals in the ore body produces large quantities of acidic water. The Report of Investigations summarizes the studies that were completed on: (1) treatment alternatives for uranium contaminated acid mine drainage, and (2) overall site reclamation, including: ground water flowpaths in the bedrock, radiation, and waste rock reactivity. As an aid to site reclamation, a Geographic Information System database was also produced that contains available current and historic data and information on the Midnite Mine. The report explains the scope of the Bureau's study and summarizes the results of its investigations.
