Environmental Testing

Environmental Testing

Acid mine drainage (AMD) can pose serious potential environmental and financial risks to mining operations. So how can you avoid the long term environmental liability that its formation can cause? How can you make sure you’re using the best method to predict AMD - from sampling through to testing and modelling?

We carry out environmental testing and analysis in our laboratories in accordance with recognised international standards, providing a full interpretation of the results and expert advice. In this way we can help you characterise in advance the AMD potential of mineral wastes (waste rock and tailings) and mine workings to enable the accurate prediction of related pollution potential – as well as defining mitigation, management and monitoring measures, including post-closure considerations. 

We can determine the potential for toxic metals and other chemical species to leach from the mine and other types of waste through TCLP and SPLP testing and ICP analysis. Other services in this area include acid base accounting, NAG testing, tailings characterisation and XRD analysis.
