Hydrology of Quirke and Panel uranium tailings basins

Technical Report:

Abstract

The research project described by this report provides the AECB with an independent assessment of the `saturated tailings concept` for the decommissioning of tailing areas at the Rio Algom Quirke and Panel uranium mines near Elliot Lake in Northern Ontario. Hydrologic and hydraulic modelling for each facility showed the interrelation between the design of the water-level control facilities and the water levels in each cell for design flood and extreme low-flow conditions, taking into account all water-balance components. The estimate of seepage rates through the tailings mass is identified as a critical issue.
