Residual pit lakes from mining are often dangerous to sample for water quality. Thus, pit lakes may be rarely (or never) sampled. Water-sampling devices were mounted on an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to improve safety and efficiency during water sampling. Data gathered during this sampling campaign assessed 2017 conditions of the Clipper pit lake by comparing constituent concentrations to the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) pit lake water quality requirements. The results showed that all constituent meet the requirements except selenium.
