    Apr 15, 2016 Many modern mining operations manage mine wastes at their source, thus preventing their remobilization. In these operations, funds are also put in place at the start of, and throughout, mining to pay for eventual closure and remediation. Should such practices continue, the global impacts of mine waste remobilization could be reduced in the future.

    Environmental occurrence and impacts of arsenic at gold

    Arsenic is a common element in the natural environment and is frequently a significant component in gold deposits of the western United States. Such deposits contain various forms of arsenic arsenides, sulfides, and sulfosalts. Upon weathering such minerals routinely lower the pH of nearby waters, mobilizing arsenic and other metals. Arsenic may also be mobilized in aqueous environments where ...

    Mining and Arsenic. Arsenic occurs in various mineral forms, as arsenides in sulphide minerals and as arsenates. The most common mineral is arsenopyrite (FeAsS), which is also found in arsenolite (As 2 O 3), olivenite (Cu 2 OHAsO 4), mimetite (Pb 5 Cl(AsO 4) 3 and cobaltite (CoAsS).. In the weathering of sulphides, arsenic can be oxidised to arsenite and arsenate.
