Consequences of tailings dams failures

Recent tailings disasters such as the failure of the Mount Polley and Samarco dams have focused the attention on the Consequences of tailings dams failures. Consequences of tailings dams failures: outflow volume and runout distance Classic approaches Various classic approaches (Rico et al., 2008, Azam & Li, 2010) assume that the volume of released tailings is a function of storage volume. Dam height intervenes, particularly for the runout distance preliminary evaluation. They find “statistical correlations” using a set of dam…

Hundred years of lessons learned in tailings dams failures

We use  the dBase published by CSP for Hundred years of lessons learned in tailings dams failures. We process Data using Luna, a BI platform by Hicare  that Riskope routinely links to ORE for pre- and post-processing of risk results. Hundred years of lessons learned in tailings dams failures The infographic below shows the full database of 289 tailings accidents, of any volume, any type of dam, failure mode, release volume, etc. We grouped the results by decade (horizontal axis)…
