Rheological and depositional characterisation of paste-like tailings slurries
2008 (English)In: Conference in Minerals Engineering 2008, Luleå: Luleå tekniska universitet, 2008, 151-160 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
The rheological and depositional character of tailings from two base metal concentrators are presented based on results obtained in connection with pilot-scale thickening tests and feasibility considerations. Thickening to a volumetric solids concentration of over 45% ( 70% by mass) close to the disposal area results in a non-segregating slurry that can be deposited at average slopes of 3-4%.Operating literature data from installations are briefly described and some macroscopic depositional mechanisms and design features are discussed.
