Work through Tailings+ training exercises to help you fine tune your Muk3D skills. The example problems (with answers and project files provided) focus on:

– Conceptual sizing of a TSF to store a specified volume of tailings and fluid.

– Staging a TSF by elevation for a centerline construction dam and developing
the associated storage/elevation curve.

– Staging a TSF by volume for a centerline and upstream construction dam.

– Developing a series of snapshots illustrating the TSF’s progression.

– Determining the location of a cross valley storage dam to meet tailings and
pond volume targets.
