Online course - Introduction to AMD (2 - 24 November 2020)

Delivery: The course material is a series of pre-recorded videos (and additional support information) and is  available for participants to access at any time over the 3 week period (2 -24 November).  At the end of the three weeks, we offer the opportunity for two 2-hour live Q&A and discussion sessions with all of the presenters. The short course is presented by 10 internationally recognised AMD specialists, who have been working in the field for many years.  Each is familiar with all aspects of AMD but has been asked to focus on one topic only for the course.  The final session is dedicated to answering any questions you may have regarding the course content, or any query that is pertinent to clarifying an existing AMD issue.

Acid and Metalliferous Drainage (AMD) or Acid Rock Drainage (ARD) represents the single biggest environmental issue facing the mining industry worldwide.  The issue can become particularly problematic post mine closure.  Unfortunately, treatment of mine drainage in perpetuity is becoming a more routine solution to this problem.  The purpose of forums such as the Australian AMD Workshop is to discuss, devise and implement proactive strategies for minimising and avoiding AMD during mining operations, so that unpalatable options such as treatment in perpetuity can be avoided.
