MetadataShow full item record
The results of leaching and toxicity tests of flotation tailings, i.e. the solid waste, originated as the result of mining-metallurgical activities in the area of East Serbia, showed that it is a dangerous and toxic waste. This waste is a constant source of water, soil and air pollution.The results of chemical analyses of waste water, generated from the investigated sites, showed that water individually presents a pollution source of the Bor River.The proposed Waste Water Management, in order to reduce the water pollution in the Bor River, cannot immediately or within a short time bring in a properly and clean condition one “dead” river and the black ecological point (or rather the river in which even the bacteria cannot survive). However, what gives a practical contribution of this work to cleaner water in the Bor River, in the coming period, is to establish a mechanism for waste water management. The implementation of waste water management creates the conditions for gradual reductio...n the newly-formed acid mine water, with the ultimate aim of completely control its creation in the future.
