May 17, 2012Summary The mining of metallic ores (e.g. iron, copper, lead, zinc, molybdenum, and tungsten), precious metals such as gold, platinum and silver, and large scale coal mining all produces wastewater (U.S.EPA, 2010).
Mining Industry Treatment Process. Wastewater from extractive operations ( bauxite, coal, copper, gold, silver, diamonds, iron, precious metals, lead, limestone, magnesite, nickel, phosphate, oil shale, rock salt, tin, uranium, molybdenum) has to be properly managed in order to prevent any water or soil pollution arising from acid or alkaline
Veolia Water Solutions Technologies provides several solutions for mine process wastewater. These include such technologies as clarification/softening, biological processes, as well as thermal evaporation and technologies.

Waste water from mining industry shows a wide spectrum of compositions. Many of the components present in waste water from the iron and steel industry are also often present in the water from the mining industry.
Veolia Water Technologies partners with exploration, engineering, and mining companies to solve their water issues, from production of potable water or desalinated water in remote locations to process water and wastewater solutions for all types of hard and soft rock mining
Chemical precipitation is a conventional technology used to treat mining influenced water (MIW), including acid mine drainage, neutral drainage, and pit lake water. Chemical precipitation processes involve the addition of chemical reagents, followed by the separation of the precipitated solids from the cleaned water.
The purpose or this research project is to characterize iron oxide precipitates collected from abandoned mine drainage (AMD) treatment facilities in order to determine whether these precipitates have possible commercial value. The treatment facilities use constructed wetlands to raise pH levels to
Mining withdrawals for the Nation, 2010. Mining water use is water used for the extraction of minerals that may be in the form of solids, such as coal, iron, sand, and gravel; liquids, such as crude petroleum; and gases, such as natural gas.
