This chapter will provide descriptions for the Prevention and Mitigation of ARD, NMD and SD. The implementation of methods for prevention and mitigation depends on development stage, impoundment type, geochemistry, climatic regime, topography, geology and hydrogeology. Material availability, land management and/or land use requirements, receptors, risk, cost, maintenance, sustainability and regulatory requirements will all influence the approach selected. Key objectives will be centered on describing the various methods for prevention and mitigation, definition and terms, suitability and applications, objectives and expectations, limitation, primary references and examples.
