Brazil is banning the use of upstream tailings dams in response to catastrophic collapses at two of them in the last four years. All of the country's 88 upstream dams will need to be decommissioned or removed by August 2021, according to a resolution from Brazil's National Mining Agency.. Mining companies that own them will have until Aug. 15 to draw up decommissioning plans, which ...
In response to several high-profile tailings dam failures, the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) developed a position statement that was published at the end of 2016 on Preventing Catastrophic Failure of Tailings Storage Facilities, which addresses six key areas of governance that members, including Newmont, agreed to implement.
It's time to talk abouttailings dams An accident in Brazil this January claimed the lives of hundreds after a tailings dam operated by Vale collapsed, releasing a wave of iron tailings and mud. Tailings dams are notoriously dangerous and have claimed lives before, so are there alternatives?Molly Lempriere reports Notoriously dangerous dams Tailings dams have a long history of ruptures and ...

Tailings Dam Construction Design of slime is likely to slide and cause the dam to break away. The procedure usually adopted in such cases is to separate the tailing into coarse sand and fines in a classifier, and to use the coarse product to build up the wall ; the remainder of the pulp is discharged into the interior of the dam.

Sep 07, 2017· Best Practices for Tailings Dam Design. Based on lessons learned from the investigations of the recent Mount Polley and Fundão tailings dam failures in British Columbia, Canada and Minas Gerais, Brazil respectively, government agencies, regulatory bodies and industry are improving how tailings dams are designed, built and maintained.
May 24, 2019· There is no Safe Dam in Brazil, Says Minister. Mines and Energy Minister Bento Albuquerque said that by the end of 2019, all dams in the country would be monitored and by 2021 all tailings dams will be decommissioned.
Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana 2Department of Earth Science, University of Ghana, Legon-Accra, Ghana Abstract: Arsenic (As) sorption characteristics in decommissioned tailings dam environment at the Obuasi mine, Ghana was studied. The aim was to outline effective remediation strategy for As, hence the objectives were to

This study investigated the issue of tailings dams as a potential source of trace elements contamination in soils at the Obuasi gold mine in Ghana. Soil samples taken from depths of up to 12 cm and within a radius of 400 m from the tailings dams (active and decommissioned), were analysed for As, Cu, Pb and Zn using atomic absorption spectrometry.
The Mining industry of Ghana accounts for 5% of the country's GDP and minerals make up 37% of total exports, of which gold contributes over 90% of the total mineral exports. Thus, the main focus of Ghana's mining and minerals development industry remains focused on gold. Ghana is Africa's largest gold producer, producing 80.5 t in 2008.
Efforts at our operations to address our risks and improve our tailings, waste and emissions management approach include: Our Boddington operation experienced heavy rainfall in August, which elevated water pressure and led to tailings seepage through a pathway at one of its tailings saddle dams.
May 13, 2019· Tailings dam failures: an interesting perspective article in Science. Late last week the journal Science published a very interesting Perspective article (Santamarina et al. 2019) on tailings dam failures.. The gist of the article is summarised in this part of the conclusion:
