TenCate and Witteveen+Bos present paper at Mine Waste 2011 Conference

Solid mine waste and mine tailings are ranked amongst the world’s largest environmental problems. The uncontrolled dumping of waste and/or insufficient aftercare has already caused several accidents at tailing disposal facilities throughout the world. Not only in the past, but also recently (e.g. the tailing dam failures in Kolontar, Hungary (October, 2010) and Kütahya, Turkey (May, 2011)).This paper offered a new approach to the assessment and evaluation of historic tailing facilities outlining new techniques that meet the need for safe and effective management of mine tailing operations.
