  • Understanding Mining Waste Management and Disposal

    21.05.2020· The major portion of the waste rock is disposed of in piles at the source. The coarse coal refuse is removed from the preparation plant and disposed of in large piles or banks. The tailings are disposed of through pond storage, dry sacking, into underground workings, or in the ocean.

  • Mining Waste an overview ScienceDirect Topics

    Mining Waste. Mining wastes include hard rocks, gravels, clays, pebbles, sands, limestones, chalks, siftings of fine fractions, dump tailings of flotation concentration of ferrous and nonferrous metal ores, sulfur ores, apatite-nepheline concentrates, coal wastes, halite flotation wastes, screenings of phosphorite, phosphoric ore fines, etc.

  • Coal waste: handling, pollution impacts and utilization

    01.01.2013· Mining wastes, • Tailings, and • Secondary processing wastes. Mining wastes, also known as extraction wastes, overburden or coal spoil (CS), are rocks and minerals generated from the mining and preparation plants resulting from opening up the main mineral deposit, composed mainly of cap and interlayer rocks.

  • Mining waste Environment European Commission

    Waste from extractive operations (i.e. waste from extraction and processing of mineral resources) is one of the largest waste streams in the EU. It involves materials that must be removed to gain access to the mineral resource, such as topsoil, overburden and waste rock, as well as tailings remaining after minerals have been largely extracted from the ore.

  • Coal waste: handling, pollution impacts and utilization

    01.01.2013· Mining wastes, also known as extraction wastes, overburden or coal spoil (CS), are rocks and minerals generated from the mining and preparation plants resulting from opening up the main mineral deposit, composed mainly of cap and interlayer rocks. They represent an average of about 20% of the total mass of waste (Hycnar and Bugajczyk, 2004).

  • Overburden Wikipedia

    Jump to navigation Jump to search. Overburden at a coal mining site. In mining, overburden (also called waste or spoil) is the material that lies above an area that lends itself to economical exploitation, such as the rock, soil, and ecosystem that lies above a coal seam or ore body. Overburden is distinct from tailings, the material that remains

  • Wastewater Treatment for the Mining Industry Fluence

    07.10.2020· In general, mining wastewater may be highly acidic and high in suspended solids. It’s common to find contamination with organic compounds, metals, heavy metals, and metalloids like arsenic, iron, and manganese. In some mining, especially for coal, wastewater can be unacceptably saline and require desalination.
