Abstract


ACID MINE DRAINAGE WITHIN THE ABANDONED LIGNITE MINING AREA – MUSKAU ARCH

Abstract. As a result of exploitation of lignite within the territory of Muskau Arch – the group of artificial lakes was formed. The chemistry of their waters is a consequence of Acid Mine Drainage (AMD).AMDstarts from the intensive weathering of pyrite (FeS2), that is present in miocene lignite-bearing rock forming the banks of the lakes. Finally this process leads to heavy acidification of the water. This paper, presents an interpretation of hydrogeochemical processes that have impact on the certain reservoir, situated within the discussed area.
