Mine Tailings an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Mine tailings are the finely ground residue from ore extraction. The grain size of the tailings depends on the nature of the ore and the milling process. Size measurements (Robertson, 1994) of tailings from four mines in Ontario, Canada, indicated the tailings materials to be predominantly silt and fine to medium sand with <10% clay content.

CHAPTER II MINE TAILINGS 4 FACILITIES: OVERVIEW 3 2 AND

Mine tailings are the waste material that remains after the economic fraction has been extracted from the mineral ore. Tailings consist of a slurry of ground rock, and water and chemical reagents that remain after processing. The composition of mine tailings varies according to the mineralogy of the ore deposit and how the ore is processed.

Mine Waste Transfer and Disposal Methods Mine Tailings

First, to access the actual seams or veins of ore, the top layers of rock or overburden must be removed. Once the overburden has been removed, the seams can be extracted. When extracting the seams, there is additional waste rock that must be separated from the ore. This additional waste rock is called gangue.
