Fonction étanchéité et gestion des risques en contexte minier. IMPERMEABILITY AND RISK MANAGEMENT IN THE CONTEXT OF MINING ACTIVITIES

Abstract : The extractive industry generates waste that should be managed in such a way as to avoid generating risks for the environment and human health. Impermeability is an essential property for the efficient management of mining waste, especially for limiting the detrimental leakage to groundwater or surface water from tailings impoundments and other mining waste disposal sites, or to prevent the formation of acid mine drainage in the case of Sulfide-rich wastes. This paper presents a review of European and French legislation relative to mining waste management, of candidate materials for limiting infiltration and suggests recommendations with particular reference to the context of French Guyana.
