The tailing dam "Topolnica“ is a storage type because it has a dual purpose, that is used for
the disposal of tailings flotation in the space of a river bed and it accumulate fluid flow water
from the river Topolnica which serving open pit mine with drinking water. First projected
elevation was 610 m above sea level, it has long been exceeded and reached final height of 90
meters. In the last couple of years, when the elevation of the tailing dam arid approached to
the final projected elevation, the open pit mine approached to develop technical
documentation for the same elevation. It was made a additional project for elevation to the
upstream slope for 20 meters, elevation 630 m. In 2006 it was made second additional project
for elevation of the upstream slope for another 24 meters, elevation 654 m and a total height
of the crown of 136 meters. With the implementation of a additional project for tailing dam it is numbered as a highest dams in Europe.
