The Australian Centre for Geomechanics will be running the Is the Future Filtered? Paste and Thickened Tailings Short Course alongside this event.
Tailings filtration provides many potential benefits, including improved water recovery and the ability to deposit and compact the filtered tailings to form a stable, engineered landform. However, there are also many concerns and potential pitfalls in adopting a filtered tailings management system, including high capital costs, equipment reliability, clogging of filter cloths, appropriate wash systems and optimisation of placement techniques.
Drawing on experiences from a number of operational filtered tailings facilities, the short course will discuss available technologies, appropriate test programmes to determine relevant design parameters, operational challenges and cost comparisons.
Designers, consultants, owners and operators, mine planners, regulators and researchers would all benefit from attending this short course, which will provide a valuable opportunity to examine a rapidly growing technology that is likely to see increased adoption in the future.
This event will run alongside the 23rd International Conference on Paste, Thickened and Filtered Tailings, to be held in Santiago, Chile, 9-12 June 2020.
