Tailings

Ignoring the Potential...

Tailings. One of those parts of the mining business that everyone loves to hate. 

External stakeholders see them as large, ugly ponds of toxic sludge, fearing their presence, fighting against their development. Not in my backyard. 

And to the mining business, tailings make up a significant cost - unfortunately being something that no conventional mine has ever been able to eliminate.

So what can be done about it? Are there alternatives?
