Types of sequentially raised tailings dams

Using natural materials water supply reservoir dams have only one design option – known as downstream type construction. Tailings dams sometimes use this construction type, but more often use, what is termed Water and Tailings dam construction methods centerline or upstream- construction, designs that water supply reservoir dams cannot employ. Centerline and upstream dams are not as inherently safe as downstream construction. For any form of publication, please include the link to this page:
