Overview

This book provides a thorough, up-to-date overview of wastes accumulating at mine sites. It deals comprehensively with sulfidic mine wastes, mine water, tailings, cyanidation wastes of gold-silver ores, radioactive wastes of uranium ores, and wastes of phosphate and potash ores. The book emphasizes the characterization, prediction, monitoring, disposal and treatment as well as environmental impacts of problematic mine wastes. The strong pedagogical framework is supported by case studies from around the world, presentation of crucial aspects of mine wastes as scientific issues; end-of-chapter summaries as well as lists of resource materials and www sites for each waste type.

The considerably updated third edition has novel and notable changes including: revision of text to reflect major developments and contemporary issues that are taking place in the field of mine waste science; new web pages at the end of each chapter; over 20 case studies and scientific issues; over 150 figures and tables; and an updated bibliography with over 1200 references. This newly balanced text will continue to equip the student and the professional with a thorough understanding of the principles and processes of mine wastes.

This well-illustrated second edition (1st ed., 2003) with … abundant references, lists of resource material, lists of appropriate Web sites, and a thorough index, would be an appropriate library holding for science and technology, economics, and environmental matters. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers; upper-division undergraduates through faculty." (W. C. Peters, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (5), January, 2008)

From the reviews of the third edition:

“Author can be proud of this successful volume. … Whoever needs updated information on the mine wastes will welcome Lottermoser’s book … . This is particularly helpful for undergraduate students in the Earth sciences and in mining engineering and related fields. … The 400-page volume is clearly driven by a didactical approach of the author. … the book does a very good job of introducing anyone interested to the important topic and of guiding the reader to delve further into the topic area.”­­­ (Jörg Matschullat, Environmental Earth Sciences, Vol. 62, 2011)
