What are tailings storage facilities | BHP

Tailings generally leave the mine processing plant in a slurry form (diluted with water) and are often but not always stored on the surface in storage facilities called tailings dams, or tailings storage facilities (TSFs). How tailings dams differ from conventional water dams. The principal difference between tailings dams and conventional ...
