Green Mine Optimization Strategy of Acid Mine Darinage Protection: Fundamentally Scenario of Sustainable Water Contaminant Management in Coal Mining Project, Case Study; South Block Area Lamin Site Pt. Mega Alam Sejahtera East Borneo Indonesia

Abdul Rahim Syaban, Rahmat Muallim


Mining activity has been a huge contributor of human environmental disaster mostly in one decades in earth. The consequences of technology approach and natural resources to complete people daily need showed the implication about the effect of mining area which contacting to human directly that would be created unbalance system among mining and human life which the source problem was Acid Mine Drainage (AMD). AMD has been the ultimate cases in mining production in the world that effects to environmental pollution and prior catalyst caused the flawed of production target in number of mining companies. Green Mine Optimization Strategy was developed sustainable system to protect water contaminant existence who will be occurred in the source of mining excavation area. South Block Area Lamin Site PT. Mega Alam Sejahtera has been conducted by number of scenario methods were Vadoze zone coal water contaminant, Run off water encapsulation, Water Monitoring Point management which all methods used MINESCAPE 4.119 to support sustainable water contaminant of management modeling system so that could be described the pattern of water management scenario from pre mining, mining and mining closure in simultaneous water indications from inlet flow forming until outlet flow forming by optimum condition. Therefore, as fundamentally resulted it would be got the best AMD protection formula for entire of coal mining project in the world to resolve a discourse among mining and human life

so that both of cases will be running together.
