Moreover, to fill out the section with new fillings replacing the traditional ore pillars will help improve the recovery rate.

4. It’s necessary for users and mining enterprises to remember to combine the tailings handling process with the mineral exploitation. Rules and principles should be made to guarantee the practice.
