Dump – in mining

A dump is usually a pile of waste rock on surface.  The waste is usually separated from ore at the mining stage but it can also be separated at an early stage of processing. The waste may be used  for base construction of a tailings dam, for road construction or utilised at the end of the mine’s life for reclamation. A dump can sometimes refer to a pile of ore but that is usually known as a stockpile.
