Marula Platinum Mine is in the process of constructing a new tailings dam abutting their existing tailings dam. SRK completed the detail design of the new tailings dam and assisted with the Water Use Licence Application process for the project, during 2017 and 2018.
mechanically deposited platinum tailings resource. The project was undertaken on one of the Anglo American Platinum tailings dams, the identity of which cannot be revealed, due to the agreement in place or permission given. Remnant unrecovered minerals of economic potential still exist in tailings dams
The existing tailings dam contains around 16 million tonnes of tailings. PPM started investigations into tailings retreatment and 'hot' scavenging of current concentrator tailings during 2013. The first metal from this project is due during 2016. Additional metal dispatches of 18,000oz pa.

Case Study Marula tailings dam Marula Platinum Mine is located approximately 32 km northwest of the town of Burgersfort in Limpopo Province, South Africa. The pre deposition works for the mines existing tailings dam was constructed in 2003 as an unlined facility, in
All of Anglo American Platinums managed tailings dams have been constructed using the upstream method, except the Blinkwater dam at Mogalakwena mine in the Limpopo province of South Africa, which uses a downstream method of construction, and Dam 1 at Unki mine, which uses a hybrid downstream and upstream method.
Aug 30, 2019· August 30, 2019 AFRICAN Rainbow Minerals will spend about R350m in the next two years on its share of the costs expanding the milling plant at Two Rivers platinum mine. Another R444m has been earmarked to extend the tailings dam to match the increased capacity, the groups financial director, Abigail Mukhaba said on Friday.
˜ ere are a number of platinum mines in South Africa that exploit platinum group min erals within the Rustenburg Layered Suite of the Bushveld Igneous Complex . ˜ e platinum tailings generated following processing of the ore is disposed of in tailings storage facilities and, whilst not acid generating, comprise elevated salts which could leach to the groundwater.
The tailings dam on Blinkwater was built to support the Mogalakwena Mine, the worlds largest open cast platinum mine, which produces 450,000 ounces of platinum yearly worth $323 million. The mine produces 70 million tons of waste rock and tailings
