About this book


This book uses a problem-and-solution approach to environmental remediation in mining, including the environmentally sustainable utilization of waste materials from the mining industry. It largely comprises articles published in Springer journals, which have been thoroughly revised and extended. The volume discusses specific problem areas from relevant Caribbean locations and is supplemented by a large number of data and illustrations. It provides an overview of geotechnical and microbial solutions to prevent post-mining deterioration in this area.
