Phosphate stabilization of mine wastes aims to immobilize metals and encapsulate sulfide surfaces with stable, impermeable coatings of solid phosphate phases [e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4]. This study was undertaken to determine whether it is possible to use phosphate amendment (ie. phosphorite, phosphate fertilizer) to induce the formation of stable, impermeable phosphate coatings in polyminerallic sulfidic mine wastes using laboratory experiments and field trials.
