pdfExperimental Oxidisation of Bassendean Sands2.12 MB
Published April, 2012
The primary purpose of this study is to determine the adequacy of the current action criterion for managing the sandy soils of the BDS. These sands have low sulfur content while producing extremely now pHFOX values. The experimental study carried out natural soil oxidation to determine the rate of acid generation from Bassendean sands with less than 0.03%S.
