Two U.S. Geological Survey computer programs are modified and linked to predict the cumulative impact of iron and manganese oxidation in coal-mine discharge water on the dissolved chemical quality of a receiving stream. The coupled programs calculate the changes in dissolved iron, dissolved manganese, and dissolved oxygen concentrations; alkalinity; and, pH of surface water downstream from the ...

The coal mine wastewater discharge was enriched with sodium and bicarbonate ions compared to sodium and chloride ions in the subsidence affected creek. Both the waste discharge and the subsidence caused increases in the concentrations of zinc by about four times and nickel by 20 to 30 times the background levels. The subsidence reduced dissolved oxygen to ecologically stressful .

STATISTICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF COAL‐MINE .

Determination of discharge degradation caused by remining of abandoned coal mines requires knowledge of mine water quality and discharge flow rate characteristics both before and after remining.

----- The acid mine discharge was monitored for dissolved oxygen and was found to contain 2.9 mg/1 of oxygen at the point of discharge from the mine and 4.9 mg/1 of oxygen at the intake of the demonstration unit. Sodium sulfite was added in the feed line to remove the oxygen. It was thought that removal of the oxygen would eliminate the flux decline due to iron fouling, by eliminating iron ...

The changes of concentrations of barium and iron ions, sulphates, chlorides were analysed. Barium was removed from waters by precipitation of sulphates. Isotopic data of sulphates (δ34S and δ18O) showed that these sulphates come from the oxidation of sulphides (pyrite, markasite or hydrogen sulphide). The process, which reduce the content of barium in the mine waters from the closed Żory ...
