Title: Regional water quality monitoring and surveillance programme for 1992 : operational investigation programme at Wheal Jane tin mine, Cornwall
Author: R.M. Hamilton
Document Type: Monograph
The monitoring and investigation programmes associated with the Wheal Jane mine project are described, in so far as they generate samples which are analysed in NRA laboratories. The programme includes elements for the assessment of groundwater quality, treatment effectiveness, and impact on both fresh and tidal waters. Due to the changing nature of the problem, the investigative content of the programme is necessarily flexible. Only estimated numbers of sampling points, samples and Analysis Required Groups are given.
