---------- BOOKS AND PAPERS ----------

[Cost: free for personal use] The printable ebook, Spectral Analysis of Drainage from Highly Reactive Geologic Materials, contains a novel and unconventional approach for interpreting and understanding the flows and chemistries of field-scale drainages from reactive geologic materials.  ISBN 978-0-9952149-1-0.

[Cost: free] The printable ebook, Minesite Drainage Chemistry: An Introduction, contains basic explanations and examples of mining and minesite-drainage chemistry. This book contains 50 pages of text and graphics, plus dozens of colour photographs.  ISBN 978-0-9952149-0-3.

[Cost: free for PDF] Environmental Geochemistry of Minesite Drainage: Practical Theory and Case Studies (paper and digital versions) is a guidebook, reference book, and textbook containing over 350 pages of practical theory and case studies for assessing, predicting, and controlling drainage chemistry at minesites. This book has now been sold to more than 20 countries worldwide!

[Cost: free] We at MDAG have compiled our published papers into one database. If you are conducting research and would like to download a copy of one of our publications, go to the MDAG Paper Database.  Please respect copyright laws!

---------- LIBRARY ----------

[Cost: free] Minesite drainage has been studied for more than a century. Our library catalogue contains more than 2000 papers on minesite drainage and related topics back to 1907. Of course, we also included Agricola's work from 1556!

---------- SPREADSHEETS ----------

[Cost: free] MDAG Grain 3.0 - a spreadsheet for calculating the geometric surface areas of grains within a sample, based on sieve analyses. This is useful in determining, for example, grain-surface-area dependencies of kinetic reaction rates, as discussed in Environmental Geochemistry of Minesite Drainage: Practical Theory and Case Studies and used in the International Kinetic Database.

[Cost: free] International Kinetic Database (IKD) - a database of summary parameters for many hundreds of kinetic tests (humidity cells, columns, and Minewall stations) from nearly 100 minesites around the world.
