During the construction of tailing dumps dams, modern materials can be used, which materials will improve the stability of dams and ensure high level of
environmental protection. At tailing dumps where dams are built upstream or central it is possible the peripheral parts to be constructed by using geotubes. Thus
improves the stability of the dam, prevents erosion and protects the air and surrounding area from fugitive emission of flotation sand with air currents. Also, to protect the
slope from erosion and dispersion of flotation sand by air currents in dams, geosynthetic material Incomat can be used which is easy for setting up and filling and can be
placed after each finished plate or parallel with the progress of the lamell during the construction of the dam. When tailing dumps dams are built in sludgy environment,
highly strength geotextiles can be used, in order to improve the stability of the dam. Geotextiles can find application for covering the dry parts of the slopes and tops of
the dams, and leave uncovered only parts for disposal of flotation sand. For retention of geotextiles anchors are used, if it is necessary they are moved depending on
whether geotextile shrinks or stretches. With coverage of dams with geotextile, air from emission of flotation sand is protected.
