9780444873743: Tailings Management: Problems and Solutions in the Mining Industry

Environmentally, the past 10-15 years have experienced a very positive approach to improving the quality of effluents discharged from mining and milling processes, and ultimately the quality of seepage from the tailings impoundment area into the environment. This book assembles all the various aspects of the process and of tailings management which have an impact on the environment, thus providing significant examples to help those involved in tailings problems.

The text is devoted to the many practical aspects of tailings management - the concerns, the problems, the solutions where knowledge exists, and the presentation of a methodology to examine mine and metallurgical wastes for the ultimate objective of designing the best disposal option for that particular site.

Review:

Australian Mineral Foundation
Gordon Ritcey of Energy, Mines and Resources, Canada, and well-known to the Australian mining industry, has compiled this substantial book in response to the mounting pressure being applied to mine operators to clean up their act to the extent that mine wastes are totally contained and the sites rehabilitated and protected in perpetuity from disintegration....The text overall is directed towards the very practical aspects of waste management and presents solutions which have been found effective in world-wide practice....This book brings together the present state of knowledge and experience.
