Using administrative controls to reduce tailings-dam risk

Mining Engineering, 1999, Vol. 51, No. 9, pp. 16-18
Glos, G.H.


PREVIEW:
There was a time when an occasional failure of a tailings embankment was considered an acceptable risk associated with mining activities. This is not the case anymore. A major tailings failure today could result in the indictment of mine officials, huge fines and a possible site closure due to the loss of operating permits. As a result of this changed operational environment, tailings disposal facilities must be operated with these potential consequences in mind.
