Using Imaging Spectroscopy To Map Acidic Mine Waste

The process of pyrite oxidation at the surface of mine waste may produce acidic water that is gradually neutralized as it drains away from the waste, depositing different Fe bearing secondary minerals in roughly concentric zones that emanate from mine waste piles. These Fe bearing minerals are indicators of the geochemical conditions under which they form. Airborne and orbital imaging
