Lignite is more accessible than other types of coal because lignite veins are located relatively near the surface, eliminating the need for underground excavation in tunnels. Surface mining also eliminates the risk of methane or carbon monoxide buildup, a primary safety concern in underground mining. Lignite mining is not totally without risk. 1.

Mining influence on underground water resources in arid and semiarid regions A K Luo, Y Hou and X Y Hu The mine water quality depends on a string of geological, hydrological and mining conditions, which differ considerably from one mine to another [10, 11]. lignite and has also incited mining of water in an exceptional scale. Numerous. pollution-induced factors may influence the groundwater quality. In order to understand the impact of lignite mining and pumping of groundwater for safe mining activity, a study has been proposed to assess the ground water quality in and around Neyveli mine area. The objective of .

Mine drainage is metal-rich water formed from a chemical reaction between water and rocks containing sulfur-bearing minerals. Problems that can be associated with mine drainage include contaminated drinking water, disrupted growth and reproduction of aquatic plants and animals, and the corroding effects of the acid on parts of infrastructures such as bridges. Water quality varies among pit lakes as a function of surrounding geology and catchment interaction (e.g., connection to groundwater and rivers, riparian vegetation, mine discharge) and so covers the full spectrum from alkaline to acidic, fresh to saline, and toxic to by:

It comprises about reservoirs of different origin, size and chemical composition, which have never been reclaimed. It has been established that remediation of this water will be required and that the maintenance of environmental flows in surface waters would be the most suitable use for the remediated water.

THE INFLUENCE OF WATER QUALITY ON THE REUSE OF LIGNITE-DERIVED WATERS IN THE LATROBE VALLEY, AUSTRALIA: Coal Preparation: No 1Cited by:   One reason for this is that the area of exploitation is densely populated and water of unknown quality from the collectors of surface mining flows into the river streams, which is then used for various purposes (e.g.

bathing, drinking water for livestock and irrigation) and also threatens to pollute underground waters. Area Examined 2. The article describes the effects of channelization on selected water quality parameters and benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages in four Big Black River (Mississippi, USA) tributaries crossing the Natchez Trace Parkway [U.S.

National Park Service (NPS)]. Two of the streams were unchannelized (Little Bywy Creek and McCurtain Creek), and two were channelized (Big Bywy Creek Cited by: 8. bond and raised concerns that mining activities have compromised local water quality.

Lignite seams within the Wilcox Group as well as the younger Reklaw Formation (where present) are rich in reduced sulfide minerals such as Size: KB.

Mine water is of good quality in SLF and has not been affected by the mining activities (excavations, transportation, dewatering, waste and fly ash dumping). This paper discusses the impact of lignite mine waters from a deep seated drainage system in the Lubstów Mine on the quality of water in a lowland river.

Lignite had been excavated in Lubstów untiland untreated mine waters had been discharged to the Noteć River. The aim of the study was to assess possible changes of the river water Author: Ryszard Staniszewski, Jean Bernard Diatta, Barbara Andrzejewska. Lignite is brownish-black in color and has a carbon content of around 25–35%, a high inherent moisture content, sometimes as high as 66%, and an ash content ranging from 6% to 19%, compared with 6–12% for bituminous coal.

We consider the discharge of acid ferruginous water into rivers as having the most important impact on water quality in open-pit lignite mining areas. One goal of the model system is the choice of the necessary degree.

Founded in (as the International Journal of Mine Water), Mine Water and the Environment presents original contributions addressing technical questions and practical issues related to the evaluation, prediction, prevention, or control of water problems at mining operations or their impact on the environment.

Both the journal and its audience are interdisciplinary. Chapter 2 - WATER QUALITY This chapter was prepared by M. Meybeck, E. Kuusisto, A. Mäkelä and E. Mälkki “Water quality” is a term used here to express the suitability of water to sustain various uses or processes.

Nature of Ground‐water pollution by surface mining Ground water is becoming a major concern with respect to surface mining of coal in both West Virginia and the nation's other coal fields. Two major concerns are ground‐water quality and ground‐water quantity, but only the quality aspects are addressed in this paper.

The mining industry is able to guarantee constant public security during open-cast mining activities and to offer an effective after-use of the land when the mines are closed.

The most important measures to that end are the building of secure slopes and tipping areas, the regulation of water quality and water balance, the creation of an.With present technology, lignite mining can be economically feasible with the removal of up to feet of overburden; however, the removal of overburden and the mining of lignite may adversely affect the streamflow and water quality in nearby streams.

Puente and Newton () reportedAuthor: Stephen J. Kalkhoff.The case study looks at air pollution, water quality issues, biodiversity effects, climate change effects, community responses, mine companies’ engagement with these responses, and the issues of coal miners.

It is based on desk top research, interviews, and interactions with affected communities and activists in the Witbank-Middelburg.
