Tailings dam failures: An interesting perspective article in Science

from The Landslide Blog

The journal Science published a very interesting perspective article on tailings dam failures. The gist of the article is summarized in this part of the conclusion: “Given the number of tailings and ash impoundments around the world and their historical failure rate, more failures can be anticipated. The situation is aggravated by the tragic consequences often faced by the populations living downstream from the impoundment. Each incident prompts us to gain better physical insight, improve engineering practices and implement regulations to minimize the potential for future catastrophes.” more
