Defining acid trend production and metallic ionic pollution with static and synthetic analysis, Sungun cooper mine, Ahar.

 

Abstract:          

The first worries in designing and fate of any mine is its reaction to the environment and the effects of its waste on the ecological condition. Acid mining drainage is one of the hazardous waste in sulfide mines, specially cooper and coal. Sungun cooper mine, in North West of Iran, because of having pyrite mineral has the potential producing this drainage in the future. After sampling from six zones in the deposit, static and synthetic experiments were designed to monitor the probability of acid production and the capacity of nutrition’s of alkali minerals. The experiments are wet cell, pH and Eh measuring and electrical conductivity measuring. A simulated drainage produced in wet cell, then pH measurements showed besides the philic-Hypogen   zone, the other 5 zones doesn’t show acidic pH.  Eh data showed that because of calsic rocks, oxidation rate is high in the environment. Electrical conductivity measurements declare that dissolved metallic ions in drainage is lower than critical.

Key Words: Acid Mining Drainage, Static and synthetic experiments, Cell Wet, Sungun cooper mine.
