Why Tailings Dams Fail
Tailings Dams can fail for one or a combination of the following reasons:
* Overtopping caused by floods that exceed the capacity of the dam
* Structural failure of materials used in dam construction
* Movement and/or failure of the foundation supporting the dam
* Settlement and cracking of concrete or embankment dams
* Piping and internal erosion of soil in embankment dams
* Inadequate maintenance and upkeep
