lead contents in mine tailings

Contamination and health risk assessment of heavy metals

Nov 09, 2020· The results of meta–analysis were carried out to explore the trend of heavy metal content in lead–zinc mine tailings over time. According to the curves of the average contents in Fig. 2,the mean concentrations of Cd, Cr, Cu, and Ni were significantly reduced in 2015–2020, whereas As was the opposite, while Hg, Pb, and Zn basically

Mine Tailings Dean Carter Binational Center for

Depending on the nature of the ore and min- eral processing, dust from mine tailings could contain a number of substances that may pose a health hazard (e.g., lead, arsenic, cad- mium, zinc, selenium, mercury, manganese, boron, etc.). Lead can have an

Comprehensive utilization of lead–zinc tailings, part 1

Jun 01, 2015· Lead–zinc tailings mainly contain sulfide with a sulfur content reaching 9.88–26.6%,which will stimulate acid mine drainage (AMD) and cause serious pollution in the environment,, . Measures have been taken to prevent the production of AMD.

Chemical forms of lead immobilization in alkali-activated

Sep 01, 2018· The fraction of lead in network in the binder synthesized with only mine tailings was 7.3%, which is much lower than those synthesized with mine tailings and metakaolin mixtures. With only mine tailings, a low content of geopolymer gel was formed because of the lack of metakaolin.

Mine Tailings an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Burning of coal in thermal power plants and disposal of fly ash, long-term mining and smelting of the sulfide ores, runoff from mine tailings, and application of pesticides and herbicides release huge amounts of arsenic in to the biosphere. Additionally, arsenic is also used in the production of semiconductors, lead-acid batteries, and

Environmental Risks From Mine Tailings

Aug 10, 2018· Tailings are a type of rock waste from the mining industry. When a mineral product is mined, the valuable portion is usually embedded in a rock matrix called ore.

Tailings containment facilities are regarded as the world's largest man-made objects. Terminology. Mine tailings' size and composition depends on the mining method. For hardrock metal mines, tailings are usually a very fine mud or powder, which is left over after ore is crushed and valuable minerals are extracted from it.

Geochemical Weathering Increases Lead Bioaccessibility in

Jun 05, 2012· Mine tailings Pb solubilized by H 2 O and AA extractions is also soluble in stomach acid, and Pb associated with ferrihydrite has been shown to be 53–88% solubilized during the gastric portion of in vitro extraction. 3, 36 Hence, accumulation of this bioavailable Pb pool at the tailings-atmosphere interface may constitute a health hazard.

(PDF) Evaluation of lead zinc ore tailings by flotation

Evaluation of tailings from processing plants is always an important issue. Lead-Zinc ore tailings containing 3.12% Zn, 3.43% Pb, 0.71 g/t Au and 74 g/t Ag was subject to this study.

Base Metal and Iron Ore Mining

wastes from underground mining is typically 0.2:1. Where concentration or other processing of the ore is done on site, the tailings generated also have to be managed. Ores with a low metal con-tent, say, less than 0.4%, generate significant quantities of tailings. In certain mines where ores have high sulfur content, drainage from mine workings
