These assessments require a thorough understanding of element geochemistry, including the speciation of dissolved and particulate phases and factors that influence their mobility, bioavailability, and toxicity on local to regional scales. Such fundamental biogeochemical information is integrated with site-specific conditions to identify possible environmental consequences during resource development.
The following current trends point out the need for comprehensive assessments and successful strategies that can mitigate future impacts of mining:
The Emerging Environmental Geochemical Challenges for Future Mining project involves three proposed tasks that will
