Gecamin Conferences



South American Network for Acid Prevention (SANAP)

SANAP was created in 2008 in Brazil by a group of professionals and academics interested in the problems of acid rock drainage and in identifying solutions to prevent its impact.

Active primarily in Brazil, the main objectives are to develop training activities, information exchange amongst professionals, and support research in the prediction, prevention and control of acid rock drainage in the context of South America. SANAP is currently in a development phase and national chapters are being established, further strengthening the South American network within the already formed national networks in countries concerned.

SANAP is a member of the Global Alliance which brings together varying networks that have developed around the issue of acid rock drainage.
