Humidity cell tests for the prediction of acid rock drainage

  title={Humidity cell tests for the prediction of acid rock drainage},
  author={Devin J. Sapsford and R. J. Bowell and Mathew Dey and Keith P. Williams},
This paper presents a study of various geochemical humidity-style weathering tests that were carried out on waste mine rock from Avoca, County Wicklow, Ireland. The aim of this paper is to present data that demonstrate some of the geochemical controls on weathering rates together with release rates from laboratory testwork. These data are used to determine the applicability of various interpretations of humidity cell data for prediction of acid rock drainage. Furthermore, within this context… CONTINUE READING
