Thermal Cover Design for Mine Waste Facilities in Cold Regions

Thermal covers have been widely adopted in Northern Canada for freeze encapsulation of potentially reactive mine waste to limit acid rock drainage. A better understanding of the predicted and observed thermal performance of these cover systems is needed to improve design and gain regulatory and public acceptance of the strategy for long-term closure. This paper describes the three main thermal covers and the dominant mechanisms of heat transfer for each.
