Conventional treatment of acid rock drainage (ARD) from coal mines generates large volumes of sludge, which requires further treatment and disposal. The aim of this work was to study the recovery of iron by selective precipitation to synthetize goethite for use as pigment. Goethite particles were successfully produced, and presented a particle distribution in the range of nano- and micro-sizes, varying from 0.04 to 5.0 µm when produced as paste suspension, or from 0.04 to 25.0 µm when dried at 60 °C and converted to a solid powder. The pigment was used to color a white cement paste, giving it a yellow ochre color. ARD treatment plants can adopt this process to reduce waste disposal issues and produce a valuable mineral (e.g., yellow pigment for concrete).
