Environmental Research Needs of Metal Mining
Mining provides the metals that society needs, but it is a challenge to produce metals with minimum environmental impact. It is not just future impacts that companies are dealing with, but remediating inherited problems as well. Multidisciplinary research is providing the foundation for new, cost-effective solutions. This booklet results from many discussions with environmental professionals involved in clean-up at various mining-related Superfund sites. Their experiences point to five top-priority environmental problems that deserve research efforts to find better answers.
