Abstract: Acid generating waste rock at Equity Silver Mines Limited is placed to minimize environmental impact and to accomodate progressive reclamation. Reclamation includes sealing of dumps with glacial till material followed by revegetation to assist in reducing oxygen transfer. A decrease in oxidation rates through reclamation techniques can have a major impact on reducing water treatment costs. The purpose of this paper is to summarize rehabilitation measures, reclamation programmes, costs, equipment selection, and research carried out at Equity Silver Mines Limited.
