The strategic implementation of a thickened tailings system for an existing conventional TSF can be beneficial in terms of significantly reducing the required post-operational earthworks and the time to achieve final closure.

One of the most challenging aspects of the successful closure Read more... about Thickened Tailings Deposition for Closure

Uranium tailings are differentiated from other types of tailings due to the radioactive nature of the material.
Radioactive tailings facilities pose long term hazards relating to both exposure and dam failure, with the
principal concern being the potential harm to both operator and Read more... about Management of Uranium Tailings

It is widely recognised that piezocone (CPTu) testing is a valuable technique for identifying the in situ engineering properties of tailings for use in stability and liquefaction assessments. Numerous empirical
procedures have been developed to relate the results

To assess the risk of acid and metalliferous mine drainage (AMD), most new mining projects require an initial assessment of the locations and volumes of potentially acid forming (PAF) waste that is likely to be moved and dumped in waste stockpiles. This requires sampling of
