    In mining projects, around 50 thousand tons of rock are extracted per day, where each ton, 5 grams or less of gold are obtained, the remainder is known as tailings. These waste are stored in more than 18,000 tailings dams in the world with a capacity of around 200 million tons each (Lyu et al., 2019). It is important to mention that throughout history, serious accidents have occurred due to the failure of these structures, since there are 6 to 14 times more likely to fail than water reservoirs (Emerman, 2018). Since tailings are loose and saturated, they are susceptible to liquefaction. The objective of this project is to understand how liquefaction works in these materials, through field visits, the characterization of behavior in the laboratory and, finally, improve the vibrating table to visualize liquefaction in these soils. The results of this project have been disseminated to through the social networks of the seedbed on Instagram as a product of citizen participation, A technical day on mining tailings was also organized at the EAFIT University with the support of the specialization in Soil and Foundation Mechanics and the company SRK. Also I know will present a dissemination article in the Social Appropriation of Knowledge (WP) format. These results raise awareness in the academic community and society about mining tailings and the importance of research to mitigate future disasters in the industry.
