ABSTRACT
The evolution of acid mine drainage (AMD) from reactive mine wastes is simulated using the MIN3P finite volume model
for coupled groundwater flow, oxygen diffusion and multi-component reactive transport including sulphide oxidation and
mineral precipitation and dissolution. The model is applied to a field test cell experiment designed with a capillary barrier
effect cover (CCBE) over reactive tailings from the Manitou mine, Val d'Or, Quebec. The preliminary simulations support
