Overview

Mine sites are interesting places for environmental geology, and there are several topics of that could be worked upon. Recent projects have involved quantifying sulphate levels emanating from waste rock piles at Macraes goldmine, the mobility of modern and historic arsenic as a byproduct of mineralized rocks, and water chemistry of mine waste. These projects can be expanded upon.
