The presented prediction of contaminants migration in the area of the Zelazny Most flotation tailings dam indicates that only lowering of the groundwater table level close to the dam embankments, resulting from vertical drainage by dewatering wells, may limit propagation of contaminants in groundwater around the dam.

The largest particles of tailings are usually used as the construction material of the dam body of TSF (ICOLD, 2001; DFAT, 2016). For this purpose, the tailings stream from ore enrichment plant should be segregated into sand and silt fractions. Segregation and thickening of the tailings stream causes a drastic change in rheological properties.
