Open Letter on acidic mine water decanting from West Rand Basin

Acid mine drainage in the West Rand, South Africa, is posing a severe threat to water, soil and human health …activist Mariette Liefferink published an open letter to Pam Yako Director General of the Department of Water Affairs.  She calls on Ms Yako to use her lawful prerogative to engage responsible parties on acidic mine water decanting from the flooded West Rand Basin.

    Hi,
    I saw a programme a while back on Carte Blanche on this and so wanted to help but never got around to it…

    It is pretty hectic stuff that is contaminating the area but there is hope… there are ways to clear up this type of pollution - it even works on uranium pollution from a neuclear fallout (such as Chernoble)… the solution comes in the unlikely form of a fungi.

    Soil and water remediation can be done cost effectively and the results are really magical to see. I have seen a lifeless polluted pile of diesel contaminated soil transformed by Oyster mushroom (you can’t eat them though because they are contaminated)… after just 8 weeks plants the pile of soil was transformed into an oasis of life (plants appeared when the soil was safe). The great thing is that the mushrooms metabolise the pollutants so they are completely removed.

    I am not sure if they do mycoremediation in this country but I would be happy to help where I can.

    Love and light,
    Tracy

    Hi Tracy,

    thanks for your interest in this.
    It is indeed hectic stuff, as these river systems are essential to the ecological health of two major bioregions,
    and will negatively affect the health of millions of people.

    I am not sure mycoremediation will work under these circumstances - it may be possible for fungi to bind heavy metals and radio-actives, but since heavy metals are in elemental form, it seems unlikely that fungi could completely break them down.

    Regarding getting involved, I suggest you get in touch with helena (email is the same name, at the biosynergetics domain),
    who is involved with Earthlife Africa, and environmental NGO that is campaigning on this issue.

    Be well,
    Flo
