2014 TREATABILITY STUDY DATA EVALUATION: BARKER-HUGHESVILLE MINING DISTRICT SUPERFUND SITE
U.S. EPA Region 8, 1050 pp, 2017

In 2014, two treatability studies were conducted for the Barker-Hughesville Mining District Superfund Site as part of the remedial investigation/feasibility study process. Year 2 of the Danny T Adit study continued the 2013 year 1 field pilot study to evaluate various passive and semi-passive methods for treatment of the Danny T Mine adit water. The bench-scale study for the Tiger Mine was focused on potential in situ-based treatments that could be deployed inside the underground mine workings area. A representative mine discharge water (Tiger mine adit TI-AD004, the "Firehose" adit) was collected in bulk and analyzed at the treatability laboratory in batch container tests with various reagents. The report summarizes each of these studies, including their objectives, experimental and sampling procedures, results, conclusions, and recommendations. https://semspub.epa.gov/work/08/1817788.pdf
