Abstract
A new approach towards waste management in a mining environment is developed and applied. This dissertation specifically studies the

storage and management of tailings in the platinum industry as well as the associated environmental impacts. The product is an

alteration of conventional tailings storage methodologies, to a sustainable design strategy in order to minimise environmental impact and

optimise social and natural conditions. Factors influencing Tailings Disposal Facility design is: geo-technical stability, public safety,

economic considerations, visual impact, water, soil and air pollution, local social context and end land use goals. Each are discussed

from an environmental and social impact point of view in order to arrive at a sustainable landform (Tailings Disposal Facility) design.
