Mine Tailings - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Pore-water pH values as low as 1.0, and concentrations of dissolved SO 4 up to 8.5×10 4 mg L −1 were observed in the shallow pore water of the tailings impoundment (Figure 12;Blowes et al., 1991). This water also contained up to 4.8×10 4 mg L −1 Fe, 3,690 mg L −1 Zn, 70 mg L −1 Cu, and 10 mg L −1 Pb.

The produced tailings were transported into a hydrocyclone separation facility, and two kinds of tailings were generated, i.e., coarse tailings from the bottom and fine tailings from the overflow of the hydrocyclone separation facility. The concentrations of the produced coarse iron and fine iron tailings from the Yuhezhai iron mine were about 65–70 and 70 wt%, respectively, and the ...

Specialised Tailings Testing - ATC Williams

ATC Williams recognise that standard testing procedures are, in many cases, not appropriate for the testing of mine tailings. In our tailings storage facility designs we place great emphasis on the post deposition behaviour of tailings and have developed specific tests to provide the data needed to optimise tailings management. Having our own NATA accredited laboratory has given ATC Williams ...

CHAPTER 5 GOLD MINE TAILINGS AS A SOURCE OF CONTAMINATION

The majority of the soil samples overlain by reworked gold mine tailings show lower pH and higher EC values than found under natural soil conditions. These soils are therefore affected by the overlying tailings. The tailings produces acidic leachate that contains salts and trace elements in solution. The changes in pH will also affect the solubility and bio-availability of elements originally ...

Tailings - Wikipedia

Terminology. Tailings are also called mine dumps, culm dumps, slimes, tails, refuse, leach residue, slickens, or terra-cone (terrikon).. Examples Sulfide minerals. The effluent from the tailings from the mining of sulfidic minerals has been described as "the largest environmental liability of the mining industry". These tailings contain large amounts of pyrite (FeS 2) and Iron(II) sulfide (FeS ...

This ensures that the cyanide remains in solution during the process of leaching of the precious metals. Similarly sulphuric acid is used (with superheated water) to strip the gold and silver from the carbon. At various stages throughout the processing of the ore, the solution is sampled and pH ...
