Mining Waste Management: Reprocessing Tailings

Mining waste management: The importance of Tailings Reprocessing. Tons of excavated material are extracted every day in mines around the world but only a small percentage contains the wanted mineral. This process is called ore grade. Have you ever wondered where the leftover material goes once the valuable part has been picked out? The answer is as simple as alarming.

A New Procedure for Deep Sea Mining Tailings Disposal

Deep sea mining tailings disposal is a new environmental challenge related to water pollution, mineral crust waste handling, and ocean biology. The objective of this paper is to propose a new tailings disposal procedure for the deep sea mining industry. Through comparisons of the tailings disposal methods which exist in on-land mining and the coastal mining fields, a new tailings disposal
