P050 ERT Measurements on Tailings Dams using Multi-channel Spectral Induced Polarization (SIP) Abstract 1 Tailings dams pose major risks to human life and the environment. The often poor construction and low maintenance level has caused serious accidents in both developed and developing countries. The EC funded project TAILSAFE is aimed at the non-destructive assessment of tailings facilities for stabilization analyses and the development of better management methods. Geophysical methods namely electrical and acoustical methods are best qualified to investigate tailing dams non-destructively on a large scale. The focus in these field studies was on the discrimination of different layering and
