As there is seldom enough ground available on which the tailing of a flotation plant can be run to waste without being stacked, it is usual to impound it in some form of dam where the solids can be deposited and the water decanted off for return to the plant.
Tailings Dams: Where Mining Waste is Stored Forever. There is no ideal tailings dam design because each environment construction and a general lack of
Tailings embankment dams, impounded tailings, mine waste, A conventional impoundment is a surface The raised embankment design is the most common construction
There are three raised tailings dam designs, the upstream, downstream and centerline, named according to the movement of the crest during raising.The specific design used is dependent upon topography, geology, climate, the type of tailings, and cost.

The Australian National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD) issued Guidelines on Tailings Dam Design, Construction and Operation in 1999 and subsequently produced an update in 2012. The document gives guidance on the planning, design, management, construction, operation and closure of a tailings facility. The document focuses on
Tailings Dams. Ames has built and still maintains some the largest tailings facilities in the world. We have the expertise to design and build your tailings facilities from conception or expand your existing structures.
While these construction principles can be applied to all types of mill tailings dams, each area, climate, and subsequent use requires some modification in the various design parameters. Due consideration to the various parameters will result in a stable, functional disposal system, constructed and maintained at reasonable cost.
Most mill tailings produced worldwide are dumped in large surface impoundments (tailings dams). In other cases, tailings are processed for use as backfill in underground mine workings. The embankments of these large impoundments are typically constructed as earth fill dams. Although water
The cover illustration is reproduced from Fig. 18 of the Bulletin : While the methods used for the design and construction of embankment dams can be applied to tailings dams, there are major differences between the two types. Embankment dams are prestigious structures used to profitably store water, whereas tailings dams are

Seepage Control for Tailings Dams by Earle J. Klohn, President, Klohn Leonoff Consultants Ltd., Richmond, British Columbia, Canada 1. INTRODUCTION Seepage control is a critically important aspect in the design, construction, and operation of tailings dams as it directly affects: the stability of the downstream slope; internal
Roman dam construction was characterized by the Romans' ability to plan and organize engineering construction on a grand scale. Roman planners introduced the then novel concept of large reservoir dams which could secure a permanent water supply for urban settlements over the dry season. Their pioneering use of water proof
Technology of Dams and Tailings Disposal The first studies on dam design and performance of its structures began in 1850, with civil engineer William John Macquorn Rankine, of the University of Glasgow. Since then, techniques have evolved, but some basic principles remain valid.
