The Mine Monitoring Manual: a Resource for Community Members has recently been published by the Yukon Conservation Society and Project Underground.
Written by Sue Moodie, MiningWatch Canada board member, the manual is designed to monitor the water quality impacts from mining. It is used for "spot check testing to detect levels of water contamination at certain sites around the mine that is affecting your community today."
User friendly, the booklet explains common causes of contamination, goes step by step through how to take samples, and explains how to read them.
Copies can be obtained from our office, or from YCS.
