About the report

The chemistry of groundwater at Ranger over the period June 1981–November 2000 was reviewed with particular emphasis on the bore monitoring data which ERA is required to provide under the current General Authorisation. Most of this data is linked to the monitoring of groundwater contamination in the vicinity of the tailings dam. The main purpose of this study was to examine, model and predict the breakthrough of contaminants at bores using available information.
