Which graphic types do you prefer?

Depending on the graphic type, they must be in one of two principal graphic versions:

  • Pixel Graphs in TIFF (width at least 1000 pixel, enlargement of smaller figures will not help to improve the figure quality. In case they are too small, we can’t publish them),
  • Vector (Outline) Graphs in EPS or PDF. Suitable drawing programs are: Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator, Freehand (Macromedia), Open Office Draw, or Inkscape.

Please don’t use JPG-Format, as those graphs usually reproduce poorly! The image at the right shall demonstrate the differenc between Pixel and Vector (Outline) files. Here is a summary of common graphic files and how to use them

Mine Water is the water that collects in both surface and underground mines. It comes from the inflow of rain or surface water and from groundwater seepage. During the active life of the mine, water is pumped out to keep the mine dry and to allow access to the ore body. Pumped water may be used in the extraction process, pumped to tailings impoundments, used for activities like dust control, or discharged as a waste. The water can be of the same quality as drinking water, or it can be very acidic and laden with high concentrations of potentially toxic elements.
