Title: Petrografia e geoquímica orgânica das escombreiras de carvão da Bacia Carbonífera do Douro - implicações ambientais
Issue Date: 2010
Abstract: The coal waste piles that result from Douro Coalfield exploitation represent one of the mostsignificant environmental impacts caused by mining activities. The aim of this work is the petrographicand geochemical characterization of the organic fraction of fifteen coal waste piles, to identify andunderstand potential impacts on the environment. The data point to the existence of oxidation, aciddrainage and consequently, the leaching of elements to the environment. The self-combustion processesin three coal waste piles enhance the acid drainage and leaching
