Abstract

Water from dewatering operations of operating mines was used for the filling and management of pit lakes successfully in Germany. The mine water contributed considerably to the filling of pit lakes in Germany in the last 20 years. Its use allowed for fast filling of the pit lakes, stabilising the side walls of the mine voids and avoiding acidification of the pit lakes. This paper reports on the experiences from the southern part of the Central German lignite mining district where mine water was the main source for the filling of pit lakes in the last 20 years.
