The placement of sulfide-bearing tailings and rock in submerged environments has long been recognized as a primary technique for control of acid drainage, and recent field investigations provide further evidence of its success. However, subaqueous disposal does not automatically ensure that acid generation is completely halted. In fact, there are reasons why acid generation might not cease in a submerged environment. Recent experimental data from a generic experiment and from the proposed… CONTINUE READING
