Andrew Garvie has more than 24 years’ experience providing scientific and technical assessments in acid and metalliferous drainage (AMD) and heap leach oxidation.  More recently he has undertaken assessments of self-heating and the potential for spontaneous combustion of coal wastes and carbonaceous black shales associated with sulfide minerals.  Studies have included the quantification of physical processes that support the oxidation of mine wastes and heap leach piles by measurement and predictive modelling.  He has assessed strategies used at mines to control oxygen supply and water flux into dumps and heap leach piles using the same methods.  Andrew’s experience includes use of geostatistics to assess the adequacy of sampling, geochemical characterisation to examine the potential of mine wastes to produce AMD, and assessment of contributors to pit lake water quality, including wall rock oxidation and in-pit waste rock disposal.  He has applied his understanding of the above processes to the development of conceptual waste landform closure strategies for the control of AMD production and spontaneous combustion.
