Abstract

Dams and tailing storage facilities are specific mining facilities that carry many potential hazards, and therefore risks. In this paper, for tailing mud damMedjedja andtailing storage facilityof the Omarska Mine near Prijedor, on the basis of the current state of the dam, past events, visual observations and specialist measurements, we have analysed possible accident scenarios, the likelihood of their occurrence, and their detrimental effects, including: loss of life, material damage, environmental consequences and impact on the reputation of the Company. The ISO standards and ICOLD recommendations related to dam risk management were used in the risk assessment.
