Mining waste

 · Mining waste comes from extracting and processing mineral resources. It includes materials such as topsoil overburden (which are removed to gain access to mineral resources), and waste rock and tailings (after the extraction of the valuable mineral). Background. Some of this waste is inert and unlikely to damage the environment.

Urban Mining and Metal Recycling

Urban mining is a relatively new concept which gets people to recycle not just e-waste, but also industrial and municipal garbage, construction waste and furniture. All these contain copper, tin, zinc, gold, silver, platinum, iridium and various other metals. Today we are standing at the breaking point where recovering metal becomes cheaper ...

Green Mining

About 73% of extracted rock goes to waste. Meanwhile, underground mining wastes only 7% of the extracted rock but is more expensive (Hartmann and Mutmansky, 2002). In situ mining (see mining solution page) can be more environmentally friendly than underground mining and is cheaper than many mining methods (Ulmer-Scholle, 2008).

Mine Waste Transfer and Disposal Methods

Despite numerous recycling methods, the majority of mine waste is still stored in facilities or waste sites. The long-term storage of these facilities has become an important topic in modern mine closures. Various regulations have come to pass that require the waste to be stable for years, sometimes centuries. This requires engineers to develop ...

Benefits of Recycling

Using scrap steel instead of ore to make new steel takes 40% less water and creates 97% less mining waste. How does recycling benefit the economy? Incinerating 10,000 tons of waste creates 1 job, while landfilling the same amount creates 6 jobs. Recycling the same 10,000 tons creates 36 jobs!
