A number of topics of relevance to geoenvironmnetal models falls outside of the realm of deposit type specific information. Among these are pit lakes as an end member "waste type" found at modern mines, and the economic aspects of mitigation and remediation.
The objective of this subtask is to provide semi-quantitative to quantitative insights into topics such as pit lakes as end member waste types and economic aspects of environmnetal issues facing future mining.
Work is ongoing to provide insights into environmental aspects of pit lakes as end member mine waste types, and into the economic aspects of mitigation and remediation at modern and future mines.
