Water quality of pit lakes is one of the most critical environmental issues facing the global mining industry. As ore grades decrease and operators strive to improve efficiency, the number of active pit mines will continue to outpace their underground counterparts in the years ahead.
How will these water resources be protected for future generations while the mining industry continues to meet society’s growing demands for raw materials?
The key to solving this dilemma is accurately predicting the water quality in advance of open pit mining.
That’s the purpose of Mine Pit Lakes.
The third in a series of six handbooks by the Acid Drainage Technology Initiative—Metal Mining Sector (ADTI-MMS), this volume includes the latest thinking from dozens of internationally respected experts from Canada, Germany, Australia, and the United States.
You’ll learn both the theory and science of predicting pit lake water quality and get insights into the best practices of pit lake management.
This book is an indispensable resource for mining professionals and environmental regulators who are considering new open pit mines or are developing monitoring programs or closure strategies for existing ones.

The Society's Acid Drainage Technology Initiative Metal Mining Sector (ADTI-MMS), based in Colorado, identifies, evaluates, develops, and disseminates information about cost-effective, environmentally sound methods and technologies to manage mine wastes. Its study of pit lakes in Nevada grew into an international collaboration of researchers from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany as well as the US. The outcome was this anthology of 24 studies on characteristics and classifications, conceptual models, the predictive modeling of future pit lakes, remediation, and post-mining uses and considerations. Among specific topics are regulatory issues in the US, stratification and circulation, sampling and monitoring existing pit lakes, microbial reactions, approaches for evaluating the predictive reliability of pit lake numerical models, bio-geo-chemical remediation, induced meromixis, and slope stability.
