THE COMPOSITION AND STATE OF GOLD TAILINGS

2017-3-13  Tailings dams are generally not designed with the same conservatism as conventional water-retention dams for economical reasons. The safe design, construction, operation and reclamation of these structures require an understanding of the nature and behaviour of tailings as a construction material. The composition of this man-made material and its influence on the in-situ state of tailings is of particular importance. A research program was therefore initiated at the University of Pretoria, to investigate the composition and state of South African gold tailings on the far West Rand gold
