MiMi – Mitigating the environmental impact of mining waste

The leaching of metals from mining waste, especially from sulphide ore mines, has a negative impact on the environment. If this weathering continues, it will increase the risk of emissions of acidic, metal-containing leachates from stored mining waste. This is a question of more than 600 million tonnes of waste, so measures to prevent or at least considerably reduce leaching must be effective
