The purpose of this study was to investigate the protectiveness of the magnesium water quality guideline values for the Ranger Uranium Mine (north Australia) by conducting an integrated laboratory and field study. A direct toxicity assessment of the groundwater and creek showed affirmed the proposed environmental rehabilitation standard of 3 mg/L Mg for surface waters with a Ca concentration typical of water from this mine site.
