obtain thickened tailings, paste, or filter cake. The paste can be mixed with different binder types (cemented paste backfill) and used to fill mine stopes. The TT and CPB are usually delivered by pumping or gravity, which requires a pipeline reticulation system. Because densified tailings behave as non-Newtonian fluids, the design

Tailings disposal: Choosing the right technology

Thickening and pumping paste tailings This method involves densifying tailings in a paste thickener and then hauling it with positive displacement pumps to the tailings storage facility. The tailings can be deposited from a single discharge point or from multiple spigots in order to raise the deposition slope.

Paste Backfill Preparation and Placement - MiningInfo

The paste backfill produced by the plant has a pulp density of 85% (wt) and a slump of 9.5 to 10.5 inches. The cement addition rate is 6-8%. Paste backfill is prepared by de-watering flotation tailings from a lead-zinc concentrator. The tailings are partially classified using a hydrocyclone to increase thickening and filtration rates.
