Integrated geophysical methods to characterize subsidence in Butte , Montana ,

13 Geophysical investigations, designed to characterize unique subsidence features of unknown 14 natural origin, provide imaging analysis of potential causes of subsidence. Recent subsidence in the

Population-based mortality data suggests remediation is modestly effective in two Montana Superfund counties

It is suggested that while mortality is elevated, it is also decreasing over time for these two Superfund sites.

Effects of Flow Regime on Metal Concentrations and the Attainment of Water Quality Standards in a Remediated Stream Reach, Butte, Montana.

Low-flow synoptic sampling results indicate that concentrations of most constituents meet aquatic standards, in contrast to findings from a diel sampling campaign that captured dramatic increases in concentrations during rainfall runoff.

Geochemistry of Trace Metals and Rare Earth Elements in Stream Water, Stream Sediments and Acid Mine Drainage from Darrehzar Copper Mine, Kerman, Iran

Darrehzar porphyry copper mine is located 10 km south of the famous Sarcheshmeh porphyry copper mine in Kerman province, Iran. Water and sediment samples in the Darrehzar porphyry copper mine were



Deep hypogene oxidation of porphyry copper potassium-silicate protore at Butte, Montana; a theoretical evaluation of the copper remobilization hypothesis

The oxidation effects of potassium-silicate protores from heated meteoric water have been thermodynamically computed and confirm previously described copper vein-forming mechanisms involving hypogene

Distribution of Organic Carbon in the Berkeley Pit Lake, Butte, Montana

Abstract.The concentration of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in the Berkeley pit lake water ranges from 2 to 4 mg/L, and is comparable to that of its inflow waters. On the dates sampled, the DOC

Early fracture-controlled disseminated mineralization at Butte, Montana

Solution transport through intensely fractured quartz monzonite wall rock resulted in the formation of a large-tonnage, low-grade mineralized zone in the Butte district before the formation of the

Long Term Changes in the Limnology and Geochemistry of the Berkeley Pit Lake, Butte, Montana

Abstract.The Berkeley pit lake in Butte, Montana is one of the largest accumulations of acid mine drainage in the world. The pit lake began filling in 1983, and continues to fill at a rate of roughly

A Survey of the Geochemistry of Flooded Mine Shaft Water in Butte, Montana

Abstract.This paper outlines general trends in the geochemistry of the more than 10,000 km of flooded underground mine workings in the Butte mining district. The waters in question range in pH from 4

Hazardous wastes from large-scale metal extraction. A case study

Caracterisation des types de pollution (primaire, secondaire et tertiaire) resultant de l'extraction de minerais a grande echelle. Discussion des impacts sur la geochimie, l'hydrologie,

Fate and transport of metals in H2S-rich waters at a treatment wetland

The aqueous geochemistry of Zn, Cu, Cd, Fe, Mn and As is discussed within the context of an anaerobic treatment wetland in Butte, Montana. The water being treated had a circum-neutral pH with high
