The article describes mechanisms of mass transfer in filled-up and washed-in piling of mineral mining waste. The criteria and hierarchy are determined to classify structures of waste piles. The structures of waste piles in Kuzbass are classified, and the diversity of one-component and compound structures of piles is presented schematically. It is shown how the determined regularities of mass transfer influence formation of fractional structures of mine waste piles, and on their physical and processing characteristics.
