Proceedings of the First International Conference on Mine Water Solutions in Extreme Environments - Full Set of Papers

Mine Water Solutions in Extreme Environments, held April 15-17, 2013 in Lima, Peru, was the first of a new conference series to share successes in mine water management in extreme environments. These Proceedings comprise an incomparable collection of papers on solutions to the challenges of mine water management in extremely dry settings, extremely wet settings, and extremely cold settings. Papers also deal with mines where the hydrogeological conditions are complex, and where the geochemistry is a major challenge.

These Proceedings contain 46 peer-reviewed papers written by authors from 17 countries. Topics include the theory of precipitation prediction, practical procedures for mitigating flooding, surface water and groundwater characterization, contaminant loading, impacts on receiving environments, water management and control, and mitigation engineering practices.
