Mailii Su - Picture series
Picture showing tailings pile #5
Tailings pile #5 is located upstream the Mailii Su river. The picture was taken from near the dam structure towards natural montains surrounding three sides of the dump. The foreground shows the surface of the 0.5 m thick clay cover on the underlying tails. The clay stores water for a longer period in spring, so gras is covering the other parts of the clay. No cattle grazing this time, but later that day.
