A potential use of limestone and zeolite to neutralize acid mine drainage in Sg. lembing Pahang

This is a simple experiment that was conducted by my 3rd Year Geology Student (Aida Rahayu). Two tanks were used to neutralize low pH acid mine water collected at Sg Lembing ex-Tin mine in Pahang. Zeolit was purchased from Indonesia while limestone was collected at Bukit Panching Quarry in Kuantan Pahang. Results were excellent and will be published soon.

Physical Modeling of Contaminant Transport through Porous Medium

An experimental work to investigate the migration of contaminant through porous medium has recently been set-up at the Geology Programme Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. This research is conducted by my research student aka graduate research officer, Ms. Nur Atiqah Anuar. This research is fully sponsored by FRGS Research Grant.
