Iron ore tailings IOTs
Iron ore tailings (IOTs) are a form of solid waste produced during the mining process. IOTs are created through the extraction of the valuable portion of the iron ore from the waste portion. This waste material is sometimes produced in the form of a type of slurry.
IOTs stored in tailing dams may be dangerous due to high levels of chemicals (such as iron oxide) that are thought to be harmful to the environment. IOTs that are not controlled or contained are sometimes carried by wind and water to contaminate other areas.
