  • 1911 Gold Projects Production Tailings Processing

    Tailings Processing Project. Under the ownership of Klondex Mines Ltd., the operations identified the potential in the tailings stored in the impoundment facility at site. Drilling undertaken in 2014 showed an average grade of .043 oz/t or 1.47g/t, supporting the development of a system to re-process the tailings. The initial design and testing took place over 2015 and 2016 with the first gold

  • Mine Tailings, Tailings in Mining, Gold Tailings

    Xinhai tailings re-processing line, with the thought of protecting ecosystem and fully using resources, provide a re-processing for those valuable metal or non-metal tailings. According different property of all kinds of ore tailings, Xinhai can design reasonable process and fully find the value in the tailings.

  • Converting Tailings Dumps into Mineral Resources Energy

    This is particularly the case for tailings dumps created from the processing of platinum group elements (PGEs) from the UG2 reef in the Bushveld Complex (BC) of South Africa, which are now being retreated to recover chrome. Similarly, tailings dumps arising from the processing of chrome ore in the Lower Group reefs of the BC are also being retreated to recover PGEs. Several commercially

  • Tailingsfo What Are Tailings? Their nature and production

    Tailings consist of ground rock and process effluents that are generated in a mine processing plant. Mechanical and stone processes are used to extract the desired product from the run of the mine ore and produce a waste stream known as tailings. This process of product extraction is never 100% efficient, nor is it possible to reclaim all reusable and expended processing reagents and

  • From Tailings to Treasure? Miners Make Money

    Mine sites typically manage tailings by constructing ponds secured by dams. According to the web site miningfacts.org, another strategy is to produce thickened tailings, which are pressed or have chemicals added to remove excess water. Thickened tailings can be mixed with cement and used in construction or as backfill in underground mines.

  • Re-Processing Gold Tailings in South Africa

    The technical and economic feasibility or re-processing hundreds of millions of tons of tailings in a number of historic gold tailings dams in the Witwatersrand area of South Africa is being investigated. The objective is to recover uranium and residual gold from the tailings, as well as to oxidize the sulphides to eliminate long term environmental liabilities associated with acid mine

  • Environmental Risks From Mine Tailings ThoughtCo

    When rain falls on tailings, it leaches away materials that can create water pollution, for example, lead, arsenic, and mercury. Sulfuric acid is sometimes produced when water interacts with tailings, or it can be a by-product of ore processing. As a result, highly acidic water leaks from the tailings and disrupts aquatic life downstream

  • How to generate value from tailings with reprocessing to

    Whether driven by regulatory compliances, tailings dam failure and water scarcity, mine tailings can well become a strong business case in the near future. Due to growing mining volumes, global tailings generation was estimated to total ~3.2 bn tons for copper and ~1.8 bn tons for iron in 2018. It is well known by the mining industry that the cost of tailings management and reclamation are

  • Towards safer, more sustainable handling of mine tailings

    Mining involves the processing of mined ore to separate valuable minerals, leaving behind huge volumes of waste tailings. Driven by mining volumes, globally generated tailings are estimated to total ~3.2 bn tons for copper and ~1.8 bn tons for iron per annum. Water conservation and the cost of tailings and reclamation are also becoming increasingly significant factors for sustainable and

  • Mine Tailings groundtruthtrekking.org

    Mine tailings are the ore waste of mines, and are typically a mud-like material. Worldwide, the storage and handling of tailings is a major environmental issue. Many tailings are toxic and must be kept perpetualy isolated from the environment. Scale of tailings production is immense, since metal extraction is usually only ounces or pounds, for every ton of ore. Tailings containment facilities

  • How can we improve mine tailings processing,

    17/05/2019· Are you struggling with mine tailings management? The storage, disposal and reprocessing of tailings and mine waste can be a significant challenge for mine operators. Through the Weir Technical

  • Mine Waste Transfer and Disposal Methods Mine

    Tailings are finely ground rocks and other mineral waste as a result of mineral processing. Due to the way minerals are processed, tailings can contain concentrations of processing chemicals. This can make mine tailings an environmental concern, so proper transportation and disposal are crucial. Consequently, the next step is to pump mine

  • Bauxite tailings Wikipedia

    Bauxite tailings, also known as bauxite residue, red mud, red sludge, or alumina refinery residues (ARR), is a highly alkaline waste product composed mainly of iron oxide that is generated in the industrial production of alumina (aluminium oxide, the principal raw material used in the manufacture of aluminium metal and also widely used in the manufacture of ceramics, abrasives and refractories).

  • Reprocessing Tailings Dams A systematic Approach

    Of these tailings a substantial amount is stored in tailings dams of which an example is shown in Figure 1. These tailings invariably contain sulphides which have potential to cause acid mine drainage (AMD). Sustainable environmental management of tailings is required to mitigate acid mine drainage and to ensure potential future liability at mine closure is obviated. If the sulphide component

  • US20120245401A1 Processing mine tailings Google

    A method for processing mine tailings includes introducing a volume of dried densified biomass products to mine tailings to produce a conglomerate mixture having substantially no liquid.

  • (PDF) Re-Processing of mine tailings: discussion on case

    The Carnoulès Pb mine closed 40 years ago, leaving tailings (pyrite-rich silts) exposed. In 1982, the tailings were gathered and placed behind a concrete dam, above a drainage pipe, and then

  • Process effluents and mine tailings: sources, effects and

    Mine tailings, consisting of process effluents that are generated in a mineral processing plant, are generally transferred to tailings ponds/impoundments to meet environmental regulations and site-specific factors before discharge. Most mining activities induce an impact on their geochemical environment (e.g., water, groundwater) due to the presence of metal-rich tailing deposits. The need for
