Tailings Dam Seepage Flow Plot – Hydrogeophysics

Image of electrical resistivity plots showing the directions of tailings dam seepage Flow – Hydrogeophysics Inc.

Tailings piles from mining operations can pose as a significant source due to the high volume of inorganic waste that has been stacked as a wet slurry. This is an example of using geophysical data to chase the seepage path. HGI mapped horizontal and vertical seep pathway and solution migration.
