Abstract

In presented paper influence of the underground mining waste on the environmental was investigated. From that point tailings and wastewater characterization was performed on samples taken from lead and zinc mine Grot, Serbia. In order to obtain experiments necessary for characterization, representative samples were taken from three different parts of the tailings: outlet pipe of the flotation facility (JOF), hydrocyclone overflow (JHC) and crest of dam (JKB). Characterization of the tailing samples include: thermal (differential thermal analysis and thermogravimetric analysis (DTA/TGA) and infrared analysis (FTIR), determination of the chemical composition and content of the heavy metals and qualitative roentgen analysis (XRPD). Also, wastewater samples have been taken from the tailings and concentrations of heavy metals in the taken samples were determined by using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).
