A long history of metalliferous mining in the IPB mining district has left a legacy of abandoned mines, mainly in the province of Huelva (SW Spain), and a big number of waste piles (n=57, total volume of 107 Hm3), tailings impoundments (n=10, total volume of 42 Hm3) and flooded pits (n=22, total volume of acidic water of 25 Hm3), which represents one of the World ́s largest accumulations of mine wastes and AMD. The mineralogical and textural characteristics of the IPB ores (with a dominantly… CONTINUE READING
