Mine waste pollution from Captains Flat mining area in New South Wales, Australia (Fig. 1), had degraded the biology of the Molonglo River, which flows into Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra some 50 km downstream, and reduced the usefulness of its waters. In the absence of immediate remedial works, there was a risk of increased pollution from accelerating erosion of the mine waste dumps and from the collapse of unstable areas.
