How shall I format my tables?

There should be a title above the table and an explanation of any abbreviations used in that table. Footnotes to the table should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data). As a general rule, tables should have only three lines: above and under the title line and at the table’s end. Avoid vertical lines.

Mine Water is the water that collects in both surface and underground mines. It comes from the inflow of rain or surface water and from groundwater seepage. During the active life of the mine, water is pumped out to keep the mine dry and to allow access to the ore body. Pumped water may be used in the extraction process, pumped to tailings impoundments, used for activities like dust control, or discharged as a waste. The water can be of the same quality as drinking water, or it can be very acidic and laden with high concentrations of potentially toxic elements.
