Special Publication: Applied Geochemistry Volume 57 Special Issue (June 2015) on Environmental Geochemistry of Modern Mining. Articles were prepared based on the October 29-30, 2010, "Environmental Geochemistry for Modern Mining" at the 2010 Geological Society of America Meeting, Denver, Colorado. Elsevier is making the articles available for FREE download for the three (3) months to promote its publication. The special issue, guest edited by Bob Seal and Kirk Nordstrom, includes a preface and 17 papers.
