This study assessed the geochemical characteristics of lignite and other waste rock of the future South Jimblebar Iron Ore Mine in Western Australia. Results indicated that lignite of CzD 2 and black shale of MU stratigraphic units were potentially acid forming (PAF) materials and relatively enriched in certain elements of environmental significance. In contrast, non-carbonaceous mudstones were non-acid forming (NAF). These findings indicate potential for acid mine drainage generation that will requires specific waste rock management.
