The purpose of this collage was to inform the public about mining. A cubic kilometre of the earth’s crust has been removed, revealing lift shafts, air ducts, galleries and the various layers of rock in cross-section. In the collage is a photograph showing the mining operation above ground.
Because these waters migrate through underground mine workings before discharging, they interact with the minerals and rocks exposed in the mine. If sulfide minerals are present in these rocks, especially pyrite, the sulfides can oxidize and cause acid rock drainage.
