Leading Practice Handbook: Preventing Acid and Metalliferous Drainage
The Leading Practice Sustainable Development Program (LPSDP) for the Mining Industry promotes sustainable mining practices. The program developed a series of handbooks which provide mining managers, communities and regulators with practical information on leading practice approaches to mining management.
The handbook focuses on:
- preventing the production of acid and metalliferous drainage (AMD) from exposed sulfidic materials
- managing existing AMD
- treating AMD
The tools, strategies and processes are consistent with the contemporary hierarchy for risk reduction.
