Conducting Pre-Feasibility Studies for Abandoned Mine Methane Projects Training

The U.S. EPA is developing this training course in support of the GMI and in conjunction with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). This course introduces principles for assessing the potential of developing projects to mitigate Abandoned Mine Methane (AMM). Determining if an AMM project is feasible requires an assessment of the project’s potential through a pre-feasibility study. Such studies are typically carried out by a project developer, or another third party, in partnership with a government organization.

AMM project developers, third parties, mining company personnel, and government officials can all benefit from this training. The course is divided into seven separate modules, five of which are now available below.
