Use of Coal Combustion By-Products to Stabilize Mercury in George’s Creek Mine Sediments

The purpose of the proposed project is to conduct research on the effectiveness of atmospheric fluid bed ash as an agent for stabilizing mercury in acid mine drainage sediment.  CCB mix designs with the use of various additives will be examined in order to establish a successful method of stabilizing mercury.  Potential reuses for the stabilized material will be identified based on the engineering properties of the optimum mixes designed in the study.
