Backfill of Tailings to Underground Workings. Figure 1: Filling of an Underground Stope (© Barrick Gold) Introduction. Tailings can be stored below ground in previous worked out voids. The tailings are generally mixed with a binder, usually cement, and then pumped underground to fill voids and help support an underground mine.

Tailings characteristics can vary greatly and are dependent on the ore mineralogy together with the physical and chemical processes used to extract the economic product. Ritcey (1989) reported that tailings of the same type may possess different mineralogy and therefore will have different physical and chemical characteristics.

health. Hence the mobility of heavy metals is an important factor to look at when assessing risk of pollution or contamination in tailing dump. This study was carried out in order to determine the effect of organic acids on the mobility of metals from mine tailings. Characterization of mine tailings was carried out using XRD and XRF.

Creation of Technosols with the use of different materials is a sustainable strategy to reclaim mine tailings and reduce metal mobility. For this purpose, a short‐term incubation experiment was designed with biochars derived from pig manure, crop residues and municipal solid waste added to tailings alone or in combination with marble waste.

For example, gangue and tailings from mining heavy metals could have a high concentration of sulfides which could cause acid rock drainage to occur. Due to the many variables, mining operations will need to develop their own methods of waste disposal in accordance with regulations pertaining to different types of waste they produce.

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 ...

Tailings (flotation waste) that is formed during copper production may be considered in the class of valuable wastes due to the amount of copper it contains. Owing to the decreasing grade values in copper ores, utilization of wastes such as tailings that carry certain amounts of copper as secondary sources has become a necessity in both the economic and environmental sense.

Extraction of valuable metals from tailings dumps (or residues or low grade stockpiles) traditionally regarded as waste, has long been researched by metallurgists. A number of developments in mineral processing technology have combined to make the retreatment of numerous tailings dumps a profitable

Most modern hardrock metal mines dispose of tailings as a wet mud, held in pits lined with clay or a synthetic liner. Many mines put the tailings back into the original mining pit. Some large mines use entire existing valleys sealed off with earthen dams, and others store tailings in natural lakes.
