Mine tailings is not exactly depleted uranium. DU is the remainder that's left AFTER refining and after separation of all (almost) of the U235 from the U238. It is an extremely hard, heavy metal. DU is a waste product which is not dangerous, except maybe for some very fine dust in machining, which should not be inhaled. It is primarily a beta emitter. Beta radiation can be blocked by a few thin sheets of aluminum foil. Ironically, DU makes excellent radiation shielding or armor for vehicles as well!
