Challenges for sustainable water use in dolomitic mining regions of South Africa. A case study of uranium pollution, Part I : sources and pathways

published at : Water sustainability. Special issue

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Point- and non-point sources of U associated with mining activities in the Wonderfonteinspruit catchment, as an example of a dolomitic gold-mining area, as well as pathways of U pollution are discussed. Associated U loads emanating from major sources are estimated. The results suggest that detected levels of U pollution in the catchment are not only caused by century old mining activities but also by current operations and that U pollution of water is likely to continue well beyond the closure of mines
