The abandoned Smolnik mine is regarded as an environmental loading in the Central Europe region, where acid mine drainage (AMD) is generated and discharged from abandoned mine and contaminates the Smolnik creek catchments. The whole mine complex produces large amounts of AMD with the pH 3–4 that contain high metal concentrations, fluctuating depending on rainfall intensity.The main aim of this work is to compare and to interpret the method of adsorption for the heavy metals (Cu, Fe, Al, Mn and Zn) removal from AMD out-flowing from the shaft Pech of the deposit Smolnik (Slovak Republic).
