Assessing the Impact of Overburden Materials Selection from an Appalachian Region Coal Mine in Mine Water Quality Using a Standard Columns Leaching Test

Metadata Updated: February 23, 2019

The objective of this study was to evaluate the leachate conductivity generated by overburden materials in a columns test representing the surface coal mining conditions and its correlation with cations, anions, pH, and alkalinity in two scenarios: “Altered” and “Unaltered” with the application of the screening and segregation proposed method. . For the Unaltered scenario, all strata were included; while the Altered scenario excluded the overburden strata with the highest 15% conductivities measured in the screening-level assessment. The 15% selection criterion was based on the best professional judgment that this would be a reasonable overburden quantity to be selectively identified and isolated in a surface coal mining operation.
