The CD-ROM features 17 of the latest ASTM standard test methods for the environmentally sound management of metal mining and processing related solids and the associated waters. These standards cover:
  • Static test methods to assess acid-base account, acid-producing and acid-neutralizing characteristics;
  • Short-term leaching tests to assess the presence of readily soluble components: synthetic precipitation leaching procedure (SPLP) and meteoric water mobility procedure (MWMP);
  • Humidity cell tests (HCTs) to empirically assess the relationship, under laboratory conditions, between drainage quality and solid-phase composition; and
  • Solution characterization methods for pH acidity, alkalinity, metals, anions, minerals, nutrients, cyanides. organic carbon, and total dissolved solids (TDs).

    ASTM Standards for Acid Rock Drainage Prediction is available in CD-ROM for $85 USD (ISBN: 978-0-8031--8686-6; Stock #: ACIDCD11).
