    As part of the acid drainage process, other toxic metals become solubilized by the acidic waters, which have been documented to harm aquatic organisms. Large fish kills, up to severe degradation of surface water and groundwater resources, have been well documented in the literature in areas containing acid drainage. In Part III, Prediction and Prevention of Acid Drainage, we address just how far we have come in predicting acid drainage accurately. The prediction of acid drainage has been challenging.

    Sulfuric acid is currently one of the world's largest-volume industrial chemicals and is used in numerous manufacturing processes. Today, bioleaching or biomining methods use changes in redox conditions to mobilize metal cations from insoluble ores by biological oxidation and complexation processes. An important bacterium of acid mine drainage which is also used in the bioleaching mining process is Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans, which oxidizes ferrous iron (Fe2+) and generates ferric iron (Fe3+), an oxidant.
