ASTM International Standards for Acid Rock Drainage Prediction
Press release date: March 8, 2011
W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-ASTM International, in conjunction with the Acid Drainage Technology Initiative Metal Mining Sector (ADTI-MMS), now offers the latest technology on acid rock drainage prediction in one convenient resource, ASTM Standards for Acid Rock Drainage Prediction.
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).
