Two mines closed within 25yrs of each other, but with very different rehabilitation approaches. Lack of rehabilitation has led to serious, long term sediment contamination at Tui… particularly Mn, Cd and Zn Similar contamination of stream sediment would result from Golden Cross (Mn, Zn, As) but for ongoing WTP operation Need to identify these potential geochemical legacy issues before mining, and design an effective rehabilitation plan (or not mine).

Physicochemical treatment (coagulation-flocculation-Fenton) of mature leachates from Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas landfill Nájera Aguilar, H.A.; Vázquez Sánchez, R.A.; Gutiérrez Hernanadez, R.F.; Bello Mendoza, R.; Rojas Valencia, M.N. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2011)Mature leachates are a significant cause of soil and water contamination because they contain high organic loads of recalcitrant materials. The application of a physicochemical process is normally insufficient to remove ...
