More recent studies report reuse of hematite mine tailings (Chen et al., ) and copper mine tailings (Ahmari and Zhang ) in manufacture of construction Size: KB.

    Tailings were found to be highly contaminated with several hazardous/priority hazardous metals (As, Cu, Cd, Pb), and pose potential contamination risk for soil, sediments, surface and groundwater. Two out of the seven studied impoundments does not satisfy the criteria required for inert wastes, shows acid rock drainage potential and thus can Cited by: There is an Open Access version for this licensed article that can be read free of charge and without license restrictions.

A study was initiated in The wider range of pHs (4 to 5 in oxidized zones and to 7 in non-oxidized zones) at site 1 compared to.   A site-specific study on stabilizing acid-generating mine tailings from Sudbury Mine using a coal fly ash from Nanticoke Generating Station is presented in this paper. The objective of the study is to evaluate the feasibility of codisposal of the fly ash and mine tailings to reduce environmental impacts of Sudbury tailings disposal sites.

To evaluate the stabilization of available As in contaminated tailings from two abandoned metal mines of South Korea (the Myoungbong and Daduck Mines, and 56 mg/kg total As, respectively), characteristics of the tailings were investigated, and the tailings were treated through precipitation of amorphous iron compounds.

Steep decreasing trends of extractable (5% NaOCl) As Cited by: Barry A. Wills, James A. Finch FRSC, FCIM,in Wills' Mineral Processing Technology (Eighth Edition), Tailings Dams. The design, construction, and operation of tailings dams is a major consideration for most new mining projects, as well as for many existing operations (Vick, ).

It is economically advantageous to site the impoundment close to the mine, but this imposes. Tailings containing toxic qualities of heavy metals are a potential source of pollution. Stabilisation by vegetative methods have been found the most effective. In an attempt to vegetate tailings dams it has been noted that while certain milky latex containing plants can be grown without any preconditioning of the soil, almost any plant can be grown after proper by: 1.

Tailings are the materials left over after the process of separating the valuable fraction from the uneconomic fraction of an gs 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. ), but the use of pre-oxidized tailings has not been documented yet to the authors’ knowledge. Valorization of pre-oxidized tailings could provide an alternative to usual cover materials that may not be readily available at mine sites, and reduce the reclamation costs and environmental impact of transporting materials to the mine site.

The stabilization of Pb, Zn and As in contaminated soils was evaluated using natural starfish (NSF) and calcined starfish (CSF) wastes at different application rates (0,and wt%).

tailings area. The successful stabilization of mine tailings with vegetation was the first step in developing new ecosystems. These systems were designed and developed to complement, as far as possible, the stage of development of the ecosystems in the surrounding area.

File Size: 5MB. physical stabilization technologies have been used, but are expensive and may not be permanent solutions. Phytostabilization, establishing a vegetative cap for the long-term stabilization and containment of tailings, is a promising remediation strategy that could reduce remediation costs as well as re-establish healthy, stable ecosystems.

Both tailings have high potential for AMD formation ( and wt.% of pyrite equivalent, respectively) with lesser amount of carbonates ( and wt.% of calcite equivalent) as neutralization potential (ABA= and tCaCO(3)/ t) and showed Cited by: The goal is to create a vegetative cap using native plants that will 1) prevent wind and water erosion of the tailings, 2) stabilize metal contaminants in the rooting zone, and 3) avoid shoot uptake of metal contaminants.

This seminar will provide a discussion of strategies to achieve successful establishment of native plants in mine tailings. A laboratory study on the stabilization of black cotton soil (BCS) with up to 8% lime admixed with up to 10% iron ore tailing (IOT) by dry weight of soil compacted with British Standard light, BSL energy (relative compaction – %) was carried out to establish the soil improving potential of the lime – IOT by: – Actively root into circum-neutral tailings – Minor rooting into moderately acid tailings, primarily limited to cover and upper one foot of tailings – Form dense root mat above cover/acid tailings contact – Affected by tailings permeability • Vegetative success generally greater in.

The amelioration of tailings, in accordance to the different rehabilitation methods, has changed the following chemical attributes for the cm layer significantly, pH, K, Mg, Ca, Al, CEC, and P.

Liming had the largest effect on the chemical attributes of the tailings as it caused an increase in pH, Ca, and Mg. A program to alleviate the condition by developing a vegetative cover over the tailings was commenced in The work was successfully carried out and demonstrated that the large area of waste could sustain a permanent cover of paper outlines the experimental work done at Buchans as well as the procedures followed and the.The mine tailings at the Iron King Mine and Humboldt Superfund site, which have not supported plant growth for decades, are typical of legacy sites: very acidic and highly contaminated with metals.
