MANAGEMENT OF TAILINGS: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

2020-9-8  3.1 SETTING OF THE MINE SITE Tailings management is typically easier, at least physically, in dry climates, where advantage can be taken of desiccation (that is, drying by exposure to the wind and sun) to naturally dewater, increase the density of the tailings and strengthen the tailings. However, on desiccation in a dry climate, sulphidic

Retention of Pollutants Elements from Mine Tailings of ...

The construction sector is one of the most demanding sectors of raw materials in existence today. As a consequence, the extraction of these materials has a significant impact on the environment. At the same time, mining activities produce a series of wastes, in some cases with polluting elements, which must be treated to avoid pollution. Therefore, the use of mining waste for the conformation ...
