Colorado School of Mines: Filtered, Paste and Thickened Tailings Course – January 2015
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.
This four day course, hosted by Paterson & Cooke is presented in conjunction with Prof. Andy Fourie of the University of Western Australia, provides delegates with a thorough background to the field so that they are better equipped to successfully implement filtered, paste and thickened tailings systems. The course will be held from January 20 to 23, 2015 on the campus of the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado.
