Upcoming Meetings

  • 40th Annual National Association of Abandoned Mine Land Programs Conference
    September 9-12, 2018 | Williamsburg, Virginia

    This year the National Association of State Land Reclamationists (NASLR), which will hold it's 46th annual conference in conjunction with NAAMLP, will be harnessing the natural synergies between the two organizations. The conference will feature technical presentations unique to abandoned mine land reclamation and will provide valuable exchanges of issues specific to reclamation specialists.

  • 11th International Conference on Acid Rock Drainage (ICARD)
    September 10-14, 2018 | Pretoria, South Africa

    ICARD features presentations on acid mine drainage and mine water issues relating to active mining and mine closure.

  • Tailings and Mine Waste '18
    September 20 - October 2, 2018 | Keystone, Colorado

    Topics related to the engineering and management of tailings and mine waste will be covered, including case histories, design, operation, and disposal for mine waste management, geotechnical considerations, liners, covers and barriers for waste control, reclamation and remediation of mine impacted sites, oil sands issues, surface water and groundwater management and geochemistry, and policies, procedures and public safety.

  • 3rd Western Symposium Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites in Denver
    November 5-7, 2018 | Denver, Colorado

    Registration is now open for the 3rd Western Symposium Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites in Denver, November 5-7, 2018. This event encourages dialogue and information sharing on design and construction issues relevant to hazardous waste sites in the western United States. Panels include one on formal adaptive management for large or complex sites, such as mining sites, and one on approaches and challenges to addressing safety issues during remediation, including investigating underground mine workings and surveying large remote sites.

 CLU-IN Mining Sites Webinar Series

 Workshops on Hardrock Mine Geochemistry and Hydrology

EPA's Region 10, ORD, and OSRTI hosted a three-part workshop series on hardrock mine geochemistry and hydrology in 2013. The goals included enhancing participants' understanding of the key issues regarding water chemistry predictions, identifying potential sources of contamination from mine sites, and describing practices to mitigate or reclaim facilities to protect natural resources. Presenters included experts from EPA Headquarters, Regions, and ORD; the U.S. Geological Survey; and the U.S. Forest Service. The workshops were open to all agencies, tribes, consultants, and the general public, and are now archived and available for streaming. Supplementary materials and resources provided by the instructors are also available for download below.
