Event Detail

Filtered, paste and thickened tailings is developing into a mature technology with wide application in mine tailings management. Several large tonnage operations are being developed based on paste and filtered tailings systems.

 The successful implementation of filtered, paste and thickened tailings technology is dependent on a sound understanding of slurry colloidal behavior, thickening and thickener operation, filtration, rheology, pump and pipeline transport systems, conveyor transport and disposal methodologies.

The course objectives are:


-    An introduction to the fundamental concepts related to dewatering, transportation and deposition of filtered, paste and thickened tailings.



-    To demonstrate the application of these concepts to the design and implementation of appropriate cost effective tailings systems.


The intensive four-day course consists of 14 lecture and laboratory demonstration sessions.
