The tailing dams are considered as potential ecological "bombs" if not constructed and managed according to the normatives and standards assigned for them. In certain cases they can be also contaminators of the environment, surface and ground waters, as well as the air. That means that through the land, water and air the tailing dams act on the environment and all flora and fauna. The flotation reagents used in the tehchnological process, as well and the resoluted salt of the heavy metals are usually present in the water released from the tailing dam. This water, beside the residuals of the flotation reagents (fenols, cyanide mixtures, high alkality or acid) contains and iones of hehavy metals (Pb, Zn, Cu, Cd, Fe etc.), as well and low content of oxygen and other fillts.
