The use of inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) to identify trace elements in gold mine waste water was discussed. It was explained that the ICP-MS permitted the identification of contaminant sources, waste water sources and the constituents of waste rock runoff.

Waste from the Mining Process. Ore is mineralized rock containing a valued metal such as gold or copper, or other mineral substance such as coal. Open-pit mining involves the excavation of large quantities of waste rock (material not containing the . The identification of constituents in waste waters from gold mining using ICP-MS. International Journal of Surface Mining, Reclamation and Environment 8, NSW EPA Analytical Chemistry Section, Table of Trigger Values 20 March , LD33/11, Lidcombe, NSW. Due to the use of dirty practices such as open pit mining and cyanide heap leaching, mining companies generate about 20 tons of toxic waste for every ounce gold ring. The waste, usually a gray liquid sludge, is laden with deadly cyanide and toxic heavy metals. Many gold mines dump their toxic waste directly into natural water bodies. The. Identifying mine waste materials as economic resources will help support global demand for critical metals, boosting the mining industry during the downturn. All with environmental benefits.
This study of water use associated with development of continuous oil and gas resources in the Williston Basin is intended to provide a preliminary model-based analysis of water use in major regions of production of continuous oil and gas resources in the United States.

Dharmappa, Muttucumaru Sivakumar, Raghu N. Singh ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS) The mining industries have also caught up with the above principles of waste. Fig.2 gives a generalised flowsheet of basic relationships between direct bioleaching, water management and waste treatment in proposed options for the production of base metals (especially copper and/or nickel) and gold from sulphide flotation concentrates. The figure indicates the options for water purification and integrated waste management.
