AbstractThe effect of mining activities in a country as Sweden (the major metal mining country in the European Union) implies enormous quantities of generated mining wastes. Historically, more than 2700 mines gather around 30000 sites that have been minor mines and quarries (according to the database of Geological Survey of Sweden, SGU [Norlin, 2016]). In 1950, there were around 100 active mines while nowadays no more than 15 active mines still remains with ongoing extractions. Many of these sites had opencast mines. During exploitation by open-pit mining, the water table is suppressed to avoid the flooding of active mines. However, when mining activity ceases, the water table recovers its original position, flooding the open pits and giving rise to mine pit lakes.
