Tailing ponds are areas of refused mining tailings where the waterborne refuse material is pumped into a pond to allow the sedimentation (meaning separation) of solids from the water. The pond is generally impounded with a dam, and known as tailings impoundments or tailings dams.
Today tailings from the allsliming process constitute virtually all the residues from gold plants. The size range of this material is between 65 and 80070 minus 75 /tm and typical gold values range from 0,1 to 0,5 g/t. In a few exceptional cases accumulated tailings have values between 0,5 and 1,0 g/t.

The same principle was applied to the other dams. of a gradational nature. An exaggerated MLGS is inserted in the crosssection to indicate how the oxygen readings were taken. 0 0.5
Magino Gold Projects (Project) setting is intended to be an introduction to the more detailed descriptions of the existing environmental conditions that follow in Chapter 4 and to provide some overall context.
Unlike water retention dams, a tailings dam is raised in succession throughout the life of the particular mine. Typically, a base or starter dam is constructed, and as it fills with a mixture of tailings and water, it is raised.
The capacity of a tailing thickener depends on the nature and size of the gangue and on the W/S ratio of the pulp. For rough calculations in the absence of definite data, it is usual to allow 812 sq. ft. of settling area per ton of dry tailing per 24 hours.
New technology allows it to recover up to 40% of the gold left in particle form in tailings. DRD Gold extracted 33,600 ounces of gold, worth nearly US$40 million, in the last quarter of 3. Mintails, a mine tailings processor, has developed new technology to process 350,000 tons of slimes from its extensive tailings resources.
Cyanide attaches to minute particles of gold to form watersoluble goldcyanide compounds from which gold is later recovered. Leftover cyanide is stored in tailing dams and reused indefini y
Gold mobile crusher is the newly type of gold mining machine for gold crushing, and it can eliminate the obstacles of the crushing places and circumstances, and offer the high efficient and low cost project plants for the client.

Rehabilitation of Contaminated Gold Tailings Dam Footprints ii In a project of this nature, the limitations, exclusions and conditions must be clearly spelled out. The authors would therefore appreciate the following to be considered in Rehabilitation of Contaminated Gold Tailings Dam Footprints iv
Stava, Italy In 1985, tailings dams built to store waste from flourite mining failed due to poor design and extreme water pressure. Two hundred thousand cubic meters (186,462 cubic miles) of tailings flowed more than 4 km (almost 2 miles) downstream at a speed of up to 90 km (almost 56 miles) per hour.
It is estimated that the tailings dam of the Mouteh Gold Mine, in Iran, contains more than 770 kg of gold. Microscopic analysis reveals that sulphide minerals and active carbon are the main sources of the gold in the tailings residue. Flotation and cyanidation tests on the samples of tailings were conducted.
Major tailings dam spill at Solomon Islands 'disaster' gold mine SBS Tens of millions of litres of water has escaped from a toxic gold mine tailings dam in the Solomon Islands lared a 'disaster zone' by the government last year.
The Merriespruit (South Africa) dam failure occurred following a heavy rainstorm and released some 6.0 215; 10 5 m 3 of gold tailings and process material some 3
Tailings are slurried with water and pumped to tailing ponds for settling. Frequently, tailings are cycloneclassified before deposition. Coarse sands are used to buildup the tailing dam, while the slimes are deposited inside the pond.
What exactly is a tailing dam? There are several ways of extracting valuable mineral ores (copper, silver and gold, etc) from the ground. Most ores are far from pure and are found as mineral compounds, so separating the

08, 60183;32;THE controlled dewatering of Gold Ridge tailings dam in central Guadalcanal is reportedly gone out of control due to heavy rain in the area. Downstream villagers have lodged complaints to health authorities in the past week about the safety of the water that was released into their streams.

The Mount Polley open pit copper and gold mine disaster in the Cariboo region of British Columbia began in the early morning of 4 August 4 with a partial breach of the tailings pond dam, releasing 10 million cubic metres of water and 4.5 million cubic metres of slurry into Polley Lake.
Gold Ridge processing plant. Solomon Islands locals living near St Barbaras (ASXSBM) Gold Ridge mine are being warned of a looming disaster as the mine's tailings dam
Mine tailings are the ore waste of mines, and are typically a mudlike material. Worldwide, the storage and handling of tailings is a major environmental issue. Many tailings are toxic and must be kept perpetualy isolated from the environment.
The Merriespruit (South Africa) dam failure occurred following a heavy rainstorm and released some 6.0 215; 10 5 m 3 of gold tailings and process material some 3 km
Location of a tailing dam is related to the natural topography of the site selected for the storage of the tailings. The nature of the underlying rocks and their permeability are the main factors affecting the selection of location for the tailings dams.
This paper reviews these factors, covering the characteristics, types and magnitudes, environmental impacts, and remediation of mine tailings dam failures. Discover the world's research 15
Processing of tailing allows for additional production without increasing a mines footprint and without requiring additional land permits. Las Lagunas, Pueblo Viejo Tailings Dam. The project is located in the Dominican Republic, 105km north of Santo Domingo. The project owner is Panterra Gold/Envirogold of Australia.
August 18, 4 Just last week, a massive tailings dam failed at the Buenavista del Cobre mine in Canenea, Sonora, and dumped 40 million liters of copper sulfate into the Rio Sonora.
Nature of tailings The process of beneficiation of run of the mine ores and subsequent disposal to surface containment facilities exposes elements to accelerated weathering and can consequently increase their mobilisation rates.
