    A detailed description of the methodology is described in Foth (). Metal and sulfate deposition impact were evaluated in three ways: 1. Soil metal concentration for human and wildlife health effects; 2. Acid sulfur deposition rate for ecological effects; and 3. Water impacts due to direct deposition and run-off.

Risk Management Criteria for Metals at BLM Mining Sites Mining activities have influenced the environment of Public Lands throughout the West.

Tailings from ore mills have contributed large amounts of heavy metals into air, water, stream sediments, and soils.

This report sets forth acceptable soil and sediment criteria for heavy metals released from abandoned hard rock mining sites as they relate to ecosystem management and protection of human health and wildlife.

Karl L. Ford, Ph.D. National Science and Technology Center, Denver, CO. INTRODUCTION. Mining activities have influenced the environment of Public Lands throughout the West. Tailings from ore mills have contributed large amounts of heavy metals into air, water, stream sediments, and soils.

The Abandoned Mine Site Characterization and Cleanup Handbook (Handbook) is the result of the collective efforts and contributions of a number of individuals. During the earliest days of Handbook development, Mike Bishop of EPA Region 8 lead the effort to develop a Superfund Mine Waste Reference Document for EPA project managers working on mine.

In this article, a new practical approach to risk management in mining projects is presented. This approach is based on a novel concept called “hazard concentration” and on the multi-criteria analysis method known as the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). The aim of the study is to extend the use of this approach to goldmines throughout by:   The screening levels are calculated from toxicity reference values based on maximum tolerable levels of metals in feed, on soil and plant ingestion rates, and on soil to plant uptake factors for a variety of receptors.

The metals chosen for this report are common toxic metals found at mining sites: arsenic, cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, and by: 5. Maintain situational awareness and utilize the risk management process. Refer to the Incident Response Pocket Guide or the Fireline Handbook for a description of the risk management process.

Look up, down and all around for hazard tree indicators and high risk tree species. Refer to attachment at the end of this JHA.
