MEND Results Complete
The Mine Environmental Neutral Drainage (MEND) program has intensely scrutinized the acid drainage problem for 12 years. The program researched five specific areas: sampling/analysis, prediction, prevention/control, treatment, and monitoring. Five technical volumes were produced on these topics, and with the publication of the sixth, MEND Manual, Volume I–Summary (MEND 5.4.2a), the complete results are now widely available.
The summary manual is a compendium of over two hundred technical reports produced by the MEND program. Mine developers, operators and mineral processors will want to add this document to their reference libraries. Governments, non-governmental organizations and other industries will also find it useful. The volume is divided into three major sections. One covers using the manual and other important mine waste management issues. The second includes summary material from the other five specialized volumes. The third outlines the MEND program in detail. All are liberally illustrated in colour.
Each volume costs Cdn$25, or the complete set of six volumes is available for Cdn$100 from the MEND Secretariat, c/o Canmet, 555 Booth St., Ottawa, Ont., K1A 0G1; telephone 613-995-4681; fax 613-947-5284; or e-mail [email protected]
Two CD-ROMs–one covering prediction, treatment, monitoring, technology transfer, and new ideas and the second dealing with prevention and control–are also available for $150 each. Or visit the MEND web site at http:\mend2000.nrcan.gc.ca
