Tailings are stored in the Copper Cliff Central Tailings (CCCT) Area which has been in operation since since commissioning, tailings were deposited sequentially in the A- CD- m- m1- Q- P-and R-Areas. Tailings disposal to R-Area began in in the R1- R2- and R3-Areas. The R4-Area.

The Copper Cliff Tailings Disposal Area is 5 km west of Sudbury, between the towns of Copper Cliff and Lively (Fig. The tailings area contains seven impoundments of various ages and sizes (Table 1).

The tailings are deposited as a slurry, typically containing 20–30% solids, in valleys between bedrock mounds near the mill site (Peters, ).

The Copper Cliff Central Tailings (CCCT) area has been in operation as a Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) since Since commissioning, tailings have been deposited sequentially in the A- CD- M- P- Q- and R-Areas.

Tailings disposal to R-Area began in with tailings being deposited in the R1- R2- and R3-Areas. The disposal of copper tailings is one of the environmental challenges in the copper mining industry.

Particles in tailings may cause air pollution in summer season and erosion of tailings. SinceInco Ltd. has been investigating the possiblity of using a flotation-derived low-sulfide tailings as a means of providing a potentially inactive cover and dam construction material for their Copper Cliff tailings area.

The investigation involves open-air field lysimeter and laboratory oxidation column tests of a low-sulfide tailings product produced by the Clarabelle mill; as well. The rock tailings are used for mine backfill, building dams in the Tailings area, or disposed of in the Copper Cliff tailings impoundment area.

Concentrate produced from the flotation process is used to generate a high copper concentrate by depressing the pentlandite, thus allowing the copper to float.

Turner and Sarah M. Canfield. Turner joined the Canadian Copper Company (CCC) of Cleveland as a bookkeeper in Turner’s responsibilities and authority expanded and he was transferred to Copper Cliff in November signaling a managerial shift back to this centre of mining.

The largest of the seven mine sites is the Copper Cliff Central Tailings Area, which (according to company documents available online) covers an area of 35 square kilometers and contains some million tons of toxic mine waste. The wastes in. The Copper Cliff Tailings Disposal Area is 5 km west of Sudbury, between the towns of Copper Cliff and Lively ().The tailings area contains seven impoundments of various ages and sizes ().The tailings are deposited as a slurry, typically containing 20–30% solids, in valleys between bedrock mounds near the mill site (Peters, ).In addition to tailings and pyrrhotite concentrates, Ni.

All of this is done at Vale's Central Tailings Area in Copper Cliff. They have a facility established in an inactive part of the tailings basin. They bring all of their material to the facility and Terrapure employees create the biosolids mix on site.

Both companies are. Copper Cliff tailings are composed largely of minerals such as Fe-oxides, feldspars, amphiboles, quartz, and pyroxenes, but also contain high levels of metals and metalloids [50].

It provides an off-season biosolids management alternative and Vale gets a highly effective tailings revegetation solution.” Instead of incinerating or landfilling nutrient-rich organics, Terrapure worked with Vale to develop a program to apply treated biosolids to its Central Tailings Area for reclamation and revegetation.

“This approach is a real win-win. It provides an off-season biosolids management alternative and Vale gets a highly effective tailings revegetation solution.” Terrapure and Vale Canada partnered at the Copper Cliff tailings area in the Greater Sudbury Area.

InVale reclaimed 40 acres with biosolids in its central tailings area with hay for dust suppression. Vale is also working to improve biodiversity at its revegetated slag pile in Copper Cliff by planting milkweed seeds, which are grown at the company’s greenhouse with the help of.

Recent advances in the in-situ testing of sulphide bearing mine tailings have included the development of a resistivity piezocone (RCPTU) and improved water sampling technologies.

The RCPTU measures the bulk resistivity of the soil, in addition to all other standard piezocone (CPTU) measurements. The bulk resistivity profile permits assessment of pore water chemistry with correlation to pore.

stabilized copper mill tailings for highway construction The results of an investigation to determine the feasibility of using stabilized copper mill tailings in road construction are presented. Properties of three types of tailings were evaluated after preliminary testing of several tailings.

Supervised drilling program. Closure PlanTitle: Field Coordinator at Dragados. The incident involving a contract worker on Vale property in Copper Cliff on April 6 was fatal, according to the Ministry of Labour (MOL).

MOL spokesperson Janet Deline said in an email statement Friday morning the contractor with Cecchetto & Sons, a civil construction services company, was pinned under the tires of a dump truck, “causing fatal injuries.”.

Its annual reports lump together its Sudbury-area nickel operations with its other “nickel assets” in Quebec and Norway forming its “Integrated Nickel Operations.” Similarly, its Kidd Creek copper-zinc mine near Timmins is but one piece of the company’s much larger “North America zinc assets,” which include the Bracemac-McLeod.

A few years ago, Vale also introduced bee colonies to its revegetated slag hills in Copper Cliff and later introduced them to its central tailings area.

There are now more than 20 bee hives, which. InJohn Shawson, an agent of the Cliff Mine, discovered native copper in the bottom of an ancient indian pit several miles from the Cliff Mine.

The Central Mining Company was organized in and mining began in Between and the end of the 19th century the company built over structures for the mine and the community of workers.

The Michigan State Geologist Douglass Houghton (later to become mayor of Detroit) reported on the copper deposits inwhich quickly began a rush of prospectors. Mining took place along a belt that stretched about miles southwest to northeast through Ontonagon, Houghton, and Keweenaw counties.: 16–17 Isle Royale, on the north side of Lake Superior, was extensively explored, and a.
