Swedish term or phrase: vasksand
Bedömning av risk för metalläckage från vasksand vid rosthyttan.
Bedömning av risk för metalläckage från olika typer av avfallssand.

Is there a difference between vasksan and avfallssand? I'm thinking that they are both "tailings".

Explanation:
I've seen about 10 different kinds of mining related '**sand' in Swe, and, well, they always seem to know what their talking about but to me it seems there are fewer alternatives in Eng.

But this is what I get for your term. See if it fits the description of your context. I has to do with the processing done to get your tailings...
