Image: Overburden 2
Overburden 2
 
Caption : Stockpile of overburden in a tailings settling pond with the Syncrude processing plant in the background. Photographed near Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada.
Facts: Overburden is used to describe the material that lies above the area or point of interest in the subsurface. Overburden is quite different to tailings. Tailings are the materials left over after most of the recoverable materials have been extracted - these can be toxic and/or corrosive. Overburden is simply material removed in order to get to the area of economic interest and is usually not contaminated. Overburden is often used to restore/reclaim the land. In the photograph the overburden will be spread over the tailings pond.
