List of Abstracts Submitted for 10th Triennial AMD Workshop  


Abstracts List

Following suggestions from the industry and academia, the organising committee have decided to include extended abstracts in the technical program. This will provide the opportunity to submit a full manuscript to a journal or to the 12th International Conference on Acid Rock Drainage, which will be held in Brisbane in the following year (12th ICARD 2021; https://amdworkshop.com.au/icard).

Suggested themes include:

  • INAP and Global Alliance updates
  • Building better waste rock dumps and creating stable landforms
  • Mine planning and geometallurgy approach to prevent AMD
  • Case studies – lessons learned and leading practice
  • Scaling up predictions: from laboratory to field
  • New technologies and approaches for AMD prediction
  • Community and regulatory perspective and feedbacks
  • Developing a business case to prevent and control AMD  
  • Residual risk, mine closure and relinquishment
  • Improvement through collaboration – sharing the data  
  • Young achievers forum: Innovative solutions for managing AMD
  • Waste neutralisation, remediation and rehabilitation 
  • Mine water treatment for acidity, metals, metalloids, and sulfate
  • Applied mineralogy, geomicrobiology and nanoscale processes
  • Biogeochemical cycles, surface chemistry and ecotoxicity   
  • Final void and pit lake processes, modelling and treatments
  • Unsaturated zone hydrology for optimised cover design and performance
  • Consequences of a changing climate at various spatial and temporal scales 
  • Tailings storage facilities and AMD management
  • Advances in instrumentation and monitoring technologies
  • Coal mining and AMD processes including saline drainage
  • Managing AMD at abandoned and inactive mines
