ABSTRACT: Covers with capillary barrier effects (CCBE) have been used in recent years as part of
the closure plan for mines having an acid mine drainage (AMD) problem. These covers can be used
to limit oxygen and/or water migration. Different evaluation methods were used as part of a
monitoring program to evaluate the efficiency of CCBE built at mining sites in Quebec, Canada
and Nevada, USA. Results obtained from the monitoring program indicate these covers can, when
