Wastes from mining and quarrying operations – such as non-pyritic colliery shale, slate quarry waste and limestone chippings – are especially suitable. This approach therefore has the great benefit of using one category of waste to overcome the problems of another form of waste (Bradshaw and Johnson, ).Cited by: EPA//R/ March PREDICTING ACID GENERATION FROM NON-COAL MINING WASTES: Notes of the July Workshop by Thomas A.

The 6,acre Barker Hughesville Mining District Superfund site is located in Judith Basin County and Cascade County in west-central Montana. Inrich silver and lead ores were discovered in the area. Mining took place through the s. Mining activities and abandoned mines contaminated soil, sediment, groundwater and surface water.

Acid/Heavy Metal-Tolerant Cultivars (DATC) project seeks to identify, select and release naturally occurring acid/heavy metal-tolerant plant ecotypes desirable for reclamation and commercial seed production.

The project objective is to develop plants for use on lands where ameliorative and adaptive revegetation methods are implemented. The Coeur d'Alene mining region in northern Idaho is one of the nation's most significant mineral producers, having yielded almost twenty percent of the silver and lead, and six percent of the zinc produced in the United States (Long and others, ).Cited by: 9.

The Coeur d’Alene River basin is one of the largest mining-related Superfund sites in the United States. It is not, however, unique. For example, just east of the Idaho-Montana border, the Clark Fork Operable Unit of the Milltown Reservoir-Clark Fork River Superfund site includes river miles of the Clark Fork River contaminated with metals stemming from mining activities in.

A detailed history of phosphate mining in southeastern Idaho was recently completed by Lee (). In addition, a spatially registered description of selected phosphate mines in southeastern Idaho, showing mine pits, waste dumps, tailings and other phosphate-mining-related features, has been prepared (Causey and Moyle, ).Cited by: 2.

Mining of mineral resources results in extensive soil damage, altering microbial communities and affecting vegetation leading to destruction of vast amounts of land.

Reclamation is the process to restore the ecological integrity of these disturbed mine land areas. It includes the management of all types of physical, chemical and biological disturbances of soils such as soil pH, fertility Cited by: Bunker Hill Mining and Metallurgical Complex, Idaho, Superfund Case Study ECOLOICAL REITALIATION OF CONTAMINATED SITES CASE STUD Site History • The Site is within one of the largest historical mining districts in the world.

The BLM measured revegetation success at various placer mines throughout the state during the mining season. Results from these measurements indicate that many placer mine sites can reasonably achieve 70% vegetative cover in two to five years with four years being the most common success.

The mining operations have resulted in elevated concentrations of metals in surface water, most notably cadmium, lead, zinc, and, to a lesser extent, copper. The metals affected surface water quality downstream in the Coeur d'Alene basin and are suspected to be .
