CSA Technology Research Database

This comprehensive database provides a single mega-file of all the unique records available through its 3 components: the CSA Materials Research Database with METADEX, CSA High Technology Research Database with Aerospace, and the CSA Engineering Research Database. The database content represents the most comprehensive and current coverage of the relevant serial and non-serial literature available.

Sources covered include over 4,000 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.

Subfiles that make up the CSA Technology Research Database can be searched separately.

The subfiles are:

  • ANTE: Abstracts in New Technologies and Engineering
  • Advanced Polymer Abstracts
  • Aerospace & High Technology Database
  • Aluminum Industry Abstracts
  • CSA Engineering Research Database
  • CSA High Technology Research Database with Aerospace
  • CSA Materials Research Database with METADEX

    AB: Abstract
    The opportunity to examine the internal characteristics of two waste rock piles through their full depth arose during the rehabilitation activities at two mines sites. Waste rock dumps at both sites were excavated and removed to open pits for permanent closure. The sites are located within climatic and geologic regimes that offer a striking contrast. The purpose of the study was to examine the internal structure of the waste rock dumps and obtain observations with respect to structure, geochemistry, fluid flow pathways, weathering and other characteristics that may aid our understanding of the long-term behaviour of suiphide bearing waste rock systems. The research program was sponsored and directed by the International Network for Acid Prevention (INAP), together with Rio Tinto Ltd., Inco Ltd., Placer Dome Inc., EGi (Environmental Geochemistry International Pty Limited, Sydney, Australia), R & D Start (Graduate Program, Australia), and NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada). The research activities were conducted jointly between the Department of Mining and Mineral Process Engineering at the University of British Columbia, Canada, the Department of Civil Engineering at The University of Queensland, Australia, and EGi. This paper describes the field characterization program that was implemented at the sites, highlights the geochemical and physical laboratory testing program, and presents the results of numerical modelling undertaken to describe the flow system within the two waste rock dumps. The specific details of the investigations summarized here are described by Fines et al. (2003) and Tran et al. (2003).
