|Abstract:||This paper presents results of accelerated column leaching tests carried out to estimate the long-term release rate of heavy metals and radionuclides from Australian uranium tailings. The effect of limestone and lime treatment before impoundment is examined. A simple model is proposed which can be used, in association with seepage data, to estimate the total quantities of contaminants released over many centuries.|
