The various methods and techniques used to deposit tailings the offshore disposal of tailings stores a considerable volume of water right up to the upstream
Paste tailings is a modification to the conventional methods of disposal of tailings (pond storage). Conventional tailings slurries are composed of a low percent of solids and relatively high water content (normally ranging from 20% to 60% solids for most hard rock mining) and when deposited into the tailings pond the solids and liquids separate.

Among the most common methods of tailings disposal, the one with the greatest economic advantage is the upstream embankment. However, it poses a significant challenge to the geotechnical engineer, due to the
Pebble Alternative Tailings Storage Options upstream, centerline, or deap sea tailings disposal was thoroughly evaluated Big for use in Papua New Guinea
More than ever, public opinion is demanding the design of stable embankments as part of tailings disposal systems to aid in abating air and water pollution. Even though many areas have no restrictions requiring industry to impound its tailings, great interest has been generated through universities, industry, and Government in developing sound

Technology of Dams and Tailings Disposal. Upstream method. The tailings are deposited hydraulically from the crest of the starter dam, forming a tailings beach.
Upstream tailings dams are known to have very poor properties Another option for a safer tailings management is paste disposal rather than the widely practiced

By Jim McMahon Mine tailings disposal, Paste thickening optimizes tailings disposal and water recovery. while reclaiming more water for reuse in upstream
Tailings Paste Thickening Tailings Paste Thickening. The advantages of paste thickeners in tailings circuits have been well established for most minerals.
The more water that can be recovered from a tailing stream and, in turn, used again upstream in the plant reduces the amount of fresh water a mine needs. The cost of water is frequently one of the primary drivers for implementing a thickened or paste tailings disposal system. Stacking. Surface stacking is the disposal of tailings on the
The consolidation process could be slow in an upstream tailings dam; therefore, the stability can reduce due to an increase in excess pore pressures when the dam is raised. The safety of the dam can be enhanced by constructing rockfill berms on the downstream side. This paper presents a case study on the strengthening of an upstream tailings

The
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.An upstream tailings dam consists of trapezoidal embankments being constructed on top but toe to crest of another, moving the crest further upstream.
Tailings Disposal Tailings are a by product of the milling process. They consist of the ground up ore rock after the minerals of interest have been removed, mixed with water to form a slurry. The solids component of the tailings is generally the consistency of silt or fine sand. Typically, tailings are pumped, or flow by gravity, to an engineered
