Sep 07, 2017· Background. Recent major tailings dam failures have led to an industry-wide review of the design and management of tailings storage facilities. Before the 1960s, mine tailings were often disposed directly into ponds, lakes, rivers or natural topographic depressions, or stored in impoundments supported by earthen dams, without necessarily applying engineering principles (McLeod et al. 2015).

Tailings are the materials left over after the process of separating the valuable fraction from the uneconomic fraction of an ore.Tailings are distinct from overburden, which is the waste rock or other material that overlies an ore or mineral body and is displaced during mining without being processed.. The extraction of minerals from ore can be done two ways: placer mining, which uses water ...

In southern Spain, the Los Frailes tailings dam failed in 1998, causing the rockfill dam to slide forward and release 1.3 million m 3 of fine pyrite tailings and 5.5 million·m 3 of tailings water [98, 99].The deposition of tailings severely polluted the rivers and surrounding residential lands [100–102].In this event, improper investigation of the geological environment was the primary cause.
