Abstract:

The objective of the seminar was to share experiences and information on ways to better manage and construct the very large dumps and pads that inevitably result from open pit and heap leach operations. As commodity prices continue to rise, the mining of lower grade deposits produce proportionally greater volumes of waste rock and heap leach residual material. Managing the resulting waste mounds, as well as stockpiles of mined material, represents a challenge for mine managers and operators, with the potential problems that may occur being many and varied.
