Geochemical Characterization and Water Quality Predictions for the Zortman/Landusky Reclamation Project.

Shannon Shaw, Robertson GeoConsultants Inc.

This 16 page PDF provides information about the reclamation of the Zortman and Landusky gold mines in the Little Rocky Mountains of north-central Montana. The objective of this study was to identify the location, extent, current and probable future contaminant loads from the sites; and to identify candidate materials for suitable cover and remediation purposes. This paper describes the material characterization program and predicted future water qualities developed for the Zortman/Landusky reclamation project.
