Mine operators are continually looking for solutions for the safe transport, storage and disposal of tailings, as well as converting tailings into construction materials and mine backfill. Our unique ability to specify the manufacture and transport of backfill products from tailings, and the recovery of water from tailings slurries can ...
In Western Australia, the Department of Minerals and Energy (DME), through administering the Mining Act 1978, Mining Act Regulations 1981, Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994 and Mine Safety and Inspection Regulations 1995, regulates safety and environmental aspects of tailings disposal in Western Australia (DME 2000).
A conventional tailings facility, designed to store water, can provide a mining operation with a buffer (e.g. storm water storage) to maintain operations during dry months of the year. Oxidation of sulphides in the tailings can create high concentrations (but low volume) of seepage water.
A leading provider of "news and education on the copper market" is warning investors that because of the recent tailings facility failures in both Mexico and Canada, it is "more important than ever for investors to find evidence that companies are environmentally and socially aware.". Just last week, a massive tailings dam failed at the Buenavista del Cobre mine in Canenea, Sonora, and ...

Mine tailings soil stabilization is just one of the many ways Desert Mountain Corporation ensures that mining operations in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Texas, Utah, and Nevada reduce fugitive dust and maintain safe haul roads, vendor routes, parking lots and other unpaved areas.
Arsenic mobility was studied in tailings from Zimapan, a mining zone of Mexico. Primary mineral phases are quartz, calcite, pyrite, pyrrhotite, sphalerite and arsenopyrite. Secondary minerals in oxidised tailings include gypsum, K-jarosite, lepidocrocite, goethite, beudantite and kaolinite.
Mining related contamination affects the soil, ground water, surface water, and sediment at and in the vicinity of the mine site and tailings facility. The pollutants include aluminum, beryllium, cadmium, manganese, molybdenum, sulfate, and zinc.

Introduction. Past mining activities have generated large amounts of unconfined waste in Mexico. The environmental impact of such waste, specifically mine tailings, generally results from their low pH, high metal content and the high incidence of wind- and water-driven erosion events.
As a part of the Zacatecas Mining Cluster's (ClusMin) objectives to continue to strengthen and develop the mining industry in Mexico, co-founder FL and other members of ClusMin recently hosted the "Technical Solutions for Tailings Management and Water Reuse" seminar in Zacatecas.
"Parral District Sulfide Tailings (Fluorspar)" is a producer mill tailings from zinc - lead - silver mines deposit district in Chihuahua, Mexico. It is a deposit, located in the PARRAL DISTRICT mining district and is considered to be of world-class significance. 1
Mexico Where Shared Goals Intersect. ... incentive for any company to re-examine the value of their historically placed mine tailings. Both geotechnical and environmental tailings regulations have changed much over the last few decades and continue to evolve as permitting becomes more challenging. If historically under-
TENORM: Copper Mining and Production Wastes Within the United States, mining and production of copper are primarily located in the West, specifically Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and Montana. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), production in these states and Michigan account for more than 99% of domestic copper production.
Historically, poor recovery rates in mining have left significant amounts of recoverable material in tailings. This can be extracted with dredges. Blogs posted by Ellicott Dredges, which sells dredgers for sand mining, harbor maintenance, river and channel dredging, and environmental clean-ups.
