Description

Acid Rock Drainage (ARD) Prediction provides an introductory course and application reference for students, technicians, and practicing geochemists, geoscientists and other professionals who desire a solid grounding on the subject. The course provides sufficient knowledge and background to allow useful application of the presented information toward site assessment with regard to the evaluation of acid generation potential. By design, Acid Rock Drainage Prediction emphasizes the practical application of the concepts presented and limits the presentation of theory to the level required for a basic understanding of the topic.

The aim of this course is to provide an overview of the concepts underlying acid rock drainage prediction and to act as a resource for practitioners to become more familiar with or reaquaint themselves with the topic. For those who require a specialized theoretical background on the topic, ARD Prediction provides an exhaustive list of technical references. The companion textbook to this course which contains some of the course text and has additional references should be read in conjunction with this course: Acid Mine Drainage, Rock Drainage and Acid Sulfate Soils, causes, assessment, prediction, prevention and remediation, edited by James A Jacobs, Jay H. Lehr, Stephen M. Testa, John Wiley & Sons, 2014. Principal topics covered by the course include:

  • Chemistry, Mechanisms and Sources
  • Site Assessment and Sampling
  • Mineralogical and Geochemical Interpretation
  • Static Laboratory Tests and Interpretation
  • Kinetic Laboratory Tests and Interpretation
  • Waste Material Management
  • Case Studies in ARD Prediction

Objectives

Course Content

ARD Prediction is structured in seven parts and a total of 29 viewing sessions of approximately 60 minutes each, plus course reviews. Current course duration is equivalent to approximately 33 hours of viewing content.

Learning Outcomes

  • Discuss the chemistry, mechanism and sources of ARD; site assessment, sampling and available laboratory testing methods; and interpretation and prediction techniques.
  • Design and implement a sampling program, and complete a site assessment and prediction for ARD.

Recommended Background

  • Acid Rock Drainage Prediction is intended as both a course and a technical reference for an audience of mine operators, consultants, regulators, practising geoscientists and final year/graduate students in the energy, mineral and environmental sectors.
