Groundwater Contamination Problems Resulting from Coal Refuse Disposal ABSTRACT by Jeffrey P. Schubert, Land Reclamation Program, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, Illinois, USA An inherent problem in the disposal of solid waste on land is the possibility of groundwater contamination by leachates from the waste.

Added to this is the problem of leachates from the large number of industrial waste and overburden dumps that are in abundance in mining areas, reaching the ground water and adversely affecting its quality.

      The presence of groundwater in surface mining operations often creates serious problems. The most important is generally a reduction in stability of the pit slopes. This is caused by pore water pressures and hydrodynamic shock due to blasting which reduce the shear strength and seepage pressures, water in tension cracks and increased unit weight which increase the shear by: 4. GROUNDWATER ENGINEERING Page 1 of 4 Technology Data Sheet Mine Dewatering Groundwater is a common problem when mining, and developing a mine below groundwater level presents many challenges. Poorly controlled groundwater will have negative impacts on the safety, efficiency and economics of mining Size: KB.

Each year the mining industry generates tremendous quantities of solid wastes as a byproduct of the mining and concentration or preparation of valuable ores, minerals and coal. In addition, the quantities of these wastes generated on a yearly basis is increasing due to: increased production resulting from rising demand, the depletion of near surface high-grade ores which makes necessary the.

This book is a compendium of potential groundwater monitoring activities. Everett recently completed a major EPA contract to develop groundwater quality monitoring guidelines for all western coal strip mine operations and for surface and in situ extraction of shale oil. He has written fundamental EPA manuals on soil core monitoring and soil pore-liquid monitoro ing at hazardous waste disposal sites.

Groundwater-Quality Data Associated with Abandoned Underground Coal Mine Aquifers in West Virginia, – Compilation of Existing Data from Multiple Sources By Mitchell A. McAdoo and Mark D.

Draining the life-blood: Groundwater Impacts of Coal Mining in the Galilee Basin 5 The series of coal mines proposed for Queensland’s Galilee Basin, on the edge of Great Artesian Basin recharge beds, stand to have a significant impact on the region’s groundwater resources, yet these risks.

Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content and since the s, has been widely used to generate electricity.

Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine is a pit, and the.

The Pocahontas No. 3 coal seam in southern West Virginia has been extensively mined by underground methods since the ’s. An extensive network of abandoned mine entries in the Pocahontas No. 3 has since filled with good-quality water, which is pumped from wells or springs discharging from mine portals (adits), and used as a source of water for public by: 2.

Area strip mining proceeds by first making a box cut into the earth to uncover the initial strip of coal that is to be mined. The strip of coal uncovered will vary from to ft in width and from one-quarter to several miles in length. The actual size of the cut will be de-termined by the thickness of.and the nation's other coal fields.
