ABSTRACTION
Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) is a unit of the dangerous difficulty environmental problem
induced in the mining cognitive process and affect on the environment referable to low-level
pH. Dealing the reality that the waste dump site with sulphide minerals is a big stockpiling
reserve of dissipation contaminant and it is unprotected to the topical circumstance
environmental condition, this region preserve to be the origin generator of AMD. It is
significant to avoid the presence of AMD from waste dump site supposing it. This dissertation
will be trying to analysis the outcome of site research work and laboratory investigation about
AMD and cover the applicability between the spatial relation construction of waste dump site
and the alteration of AMD to apply general acknowledged apparatus as the prediction of
AMD potential for coalmine development. This subject area implies assessment of
geochemistry, mineralogy, geological data, static tests data, and kinetic tests data acquired
from the Kaltim Prima Coal (KPC) Company site.
Illustration models and schematic measuring characterization site will be investigated for
AMD prediction function. Acid generating and neutralizing lithologies will be demonstrated
from the mine site investigation. Total sulfur materials observation will be analyzed as the
aspect for AMD generation. Geochemical data will be exposed in the study area.
During the cognitive process stage, to prevent or decrease AMD, it is necessary to conduct
measure against AMD potential factors as protection or means of defense especially from the
the waste dump site as the AMD sources origin.
