Zeolites are minerals comprised of silicon, aluminum, and oxygen that form frameworks full of cavities and channels that can work as "molecular sieves."
Ted Eyde, President of St. Cloud Mining in Tucson, joins us on this month's episode of Arizona Mining Review to describe how certain zeolites are being used to remediate acid mine drainage.
