Chile is one of the main copper producers in the world. It is located in a geographical area where mega-earthquakes occur and this fact, together with the development of larger and higher sand tailings dams (with some facilities currently under development having final heights in excess of m), requires that careful attention be paid to the safety and security of these facilities.   Riverine tailings disposal (RTD) is the direct discharge of mine process tailings into rivers. Overburden is also sometimes co-disposed during RTD. Riverine tailings disposal is relatively uncommon, but is still practiced in parts of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea (e.g. Salomons, , Brunskill et al., , Swanson et al., , Bolton,

The mining industry is a fundamental industry involved in the development of modern society, but is also the world’s largest waste producer. This role will be enhanced in the future, because ore grades are generally decreasing, thus leading to increases in the waste/metal production ratio. Mine wastes deposited on-land in so-called tailings dams, impoundments or waste-dumps have several. This is a state-of-the art survey of embankment dams. Drawing on an international authorship, it provides up to date information from many countries on research, environmental considerations, risks, hazards and safety. A major part of the book is devoted to a wide-ranging study of tailings dams, which draws together current international practice.

Proceedings of a course, New Delhi, August by i, (Eds.), A.A. Balkema, Rotterdamp. The majority of currently available dam safety guidelines do not account well for the specifics of tailings dams.

In the guidelines commonly used in Canada, tailings dams are addressed alongside water retention (conventional) dams.

This results in an user-unfriendly, and potentially unsafe and/or inappropriate, treatment of safety aspects specific to tailings dams. Proceedings of the International Workshop on Managing the Risks of Tailings Disposal. ICME-UNEP, Stockholm, pp.

A guide to dam risk management: part I -guiding principles. In a keynote address at a tailings conference Dr. Mac G Robertson described this trend and its implications going forward as elevating risk potential by a factor of 20 every 1/3 century.

His address called a “red flag” on the current “Mining Metric” which results in. The program discusses a systematic, risk-based approach to tailings management while providing principles for management during all phases of the life cycle.

The program is designed for mine operators; however, it can also be used for interested parties such as governments, mining consultants, environmental officers or non-governmental.

Abstract: The use of mined out pits for tailings storage is becoming increasingly popular due to economic and environmental benefits. The main post closure issue with tailings deposition into in-pit facilities is the prediction of the settlement of the final surface in terms of time and magnitude of consolidation (settlement), as this governs when rehabilitation can commence and the type of.

(c) Tailings disposal practices that generally saw tailings placed adjacent to mills, using practices common to other metal mill tailings of the day — i.e. no design features to improve containment security, reduce radon flux, isolate the tailings from wind or water erosion or interaction with surface and groundwater systems.

This paper illustrates the geotechnical aspects of the development of one of the world's largest copper tailings disposal facilities, located at Zelazny Most in south-west Poland. Its operation commenced in and, by the end of× 10 6 m 3 of tailings had already been stored within a confining embankment dam (‘ring dam') of about.

Yilmaz The mining industry creates huge quantities of sulphidic or non-sulphidic tailings which may pose a number of environmental problems (e.g., acid mine drainage formation and tailings dam failures) mainly due to their sheer volumes and toxicities.

New management methods that improve the physical and (or) chemical stability have hence been developed to reduce environmental risks associated with tailings storage, namely, densified tailings, environmental desulphurization, covers built with tailings, and co-disposal of tailings.
