Abstract Three mine-waste-contaminate materials from the flood plain of Canyon Creek, ID, were separated by size to determine if the amount of on-site metal release could be reduced. Comparing weighted-average metal release of damp-screened, sized fractions with metal release from original materials suggested that separation marginally reduced metal releases. In contrast, wet screening of all three material types led to significant reductions in metal releases without removing any solid materials. However, the results from some column leaching tests suggest that some of these effects may be only temporary.
