SUB-SEA TAILINGS DEPOSITION WORK SHOP ,
June 26-27, 2013
For many mining operations, deposition of tailings can be difficult to design in an environmental friendly way. It is an issue if tailings dikes shall be impervious or flow through, if the tailings dams after closure should have a water cover or soil cover. For many operations along rugged terrain near sea or fjords or deep sea it is tempting to deposit in this environment where it is ''out of site out of mind''. How out of site out of mind is it actually, or maybe this is the best option to in some cases to stop sulfide oxidation and metal release. This workshop will bring together the specialist in the field, geochemist, engineers, biologist and oceanographers working with sub-sea deposition of tailings.
The aim of the workshop is to discuss all issues related to salt water, sub sea deposition of tailings
