  1. 1. Fines Content and Density Effects on Tailings Behaviour : A Laboratory Study on Geotechnical Properties

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Geoteknologi

    Author : Viktor Wiklund; [2018]
    Keywords : strength; compressibility; permeability; anrikningssand; hållfasthet; konsolidering; permeabilitet;

    Abstract : Tailings are a rest product from the extraction of metals and minerals, and is therefore produced in large volumes by all mining companies. One common way to store tailings material is to deposit it as a hydraulic slurry on a tailings impoundment, where the tailings are held in place by tailings dams. READ MORE

  2. 2. Determination of dry density in tailings with a Dynamic Cone Penetrometer :

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Patrik Hagström; [2017]
    Keywords : dynamic cone penetrometer; tailings dam; tailings beach; tailings;

    Abstract : Today mines produce metals which are used for everyday products by people worldwide. When metals are produced, waste products known as tailings are generated. These tailings are commonly stored in impoundments, surrounded by embankment dams. The demands from the society are constantly increasing regarding the quality and safety of dams. READ MORE

  3. 3. Closure of Lilla Bredsjön Tailings Dam : an Evaluation of the Long-Term Dam Safety Measures

    University essay from KTH/Vattendragsteknik

  4. 4. Stability analysis on a planned Mexican tailings dam

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper

    Author : Sofie Törnqvist; Amanda Lindquist; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : If mine waste materials are stored in dams, the dams are referred to as tailings dams. Tailings dam failures can lead to massive destruction in nearby areas because of the large amount of water and slurry tailings stored in the dams. Tailings dams are large constructions which therefore endure great stresses. READ MORE

  5. 5. Safety Evaluation of the Zhaoli Tailings Dam : A seepage, deformation and stability analysis with GeoStudio

    University essay from

    Author : Malin Ljungblad; Johan Bäckström; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract :  The mining industry produce large amount of mine waste, also called tailings, which must be kept in tailings dams. In this thesis the safety and stability of a tailings dam have been studied, where some of the tailing material is being used as filling material. The dam has been modelled and simulated using the software Geostudio. READ MORE
