Abstract
Both chemical and chemical-vegetative methods have proven successful in preventing wind and water erosion from mill tailings accumulations. Elastomeric polymers are among the preferred materials for strictly chemical stabilization. Other allied uses of polymers that have been developed include applications to reagent stockpiles for improved storage, treatment of fine materials for transportation in open conveyances, and strengthening of soft, porous rocks by impregnation. Some polymeric chemicals are also beneficial in a combined chemical-vegetative stabilization procedure, but resinous compounds thus far are preferred for such use.
