tailings recycling for building construction

How Is Mining Waste Recycled?

Recycling The Smaller Stuff. Tailings are the finely ground rock left over after mineral processing and they are mostly stored as a watery mix in tailing dams. Despite big improvements in the construction of tailings dams, they can fail, often with disastrous consequences. Some mines reduce this risk by ‘thickening’ the tailings.

The choices available for construction material are increased as smaller quantities are needed at any one time. For example, retention dams generally use natural soil whereas raised embankments can use natural soil, tailings, and waste rock in any combination (Vick 1990).

Best Practices for Tailings Dam Design - Klohn Crippen

Tailings dam design should be based on a complete understanding of the foundation geology and soils, through comprehensive site investigations, and designed for the full life cycle of the mine, from the initial stages of construction, to mining operations, and ultimately decommissioning and closure (McLeod and Bjelkevik 2017).
