esperanza thickened tailings project was designed to store a maximum of 750 million tonnes of copper tailings. Paste and thickened tailings are relatively new technologies in Chile, and so gaining permits for the facility was expected to be complicated. Three aspects required special consideration Beach slope

An increase in the beach slope angle is related to slowed beach velocity, which in turn causes faster settling of tailings particles. The fines fraction of the tailings are influenced more by the decrease in beach velocity than the coarser (percent passing 50 mesh, beach sample) sands, r = 0.507.

May 10, 2015The wall of an open pit wall will consist of a series of stacked benches. Geotechnical engineers will normally provide the pit slope design criteria based on the inter ramp angle (IRA) for various sectors around the pit. The IRA represents the toe to toe slope angle, as shown in the diagram below. The inter ramp angle

May 30, 2018Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of laboratory flume tests on thickened tailings were conducted to highlight the factors that may influence the slopes of final profiles achieved in such flumes. The numerical model was first validated against the analytical solution of a sheet of

In Brazil, WesTech recently designed thickeners for a bauxite beneficiation facility in a very wet tropical location. The tailings system consisted of two high density paste thickeners that produce a low yield stress paste. This type of paste, which could be pumped with centrifugal pumps, was expected to produce a low angle beach slope.

As a general rule, the optimum slope setting of a sluice is around one inch of drop per linear foot of box. This can change, depending upon the volume and velocity of water being used, and/or the average shape, size, volume or weight (specific gravity) of material that you are processing.

The beach slope is an important parameter to consider in tailings storage facility design that can influence both initial construction (e.g. starter dyke requirements) and on going operational costs (e.g. embankment raises, pond capacity). A flatter beach slope than designed for

The TSF design was optimised for cost savings to store a specific thickened tailings product with a predicted beach slope profile and minimal supernatant pond, which influenced the perimeter embankment type and sizing. The main drivers were to minimise fresh water consumption, reduce tailings footprint by enhanced

of the slopes of gold tailings dams in South Africa24. Figure 1a shows measurements relating slope angle to tailings loss by erosion, mainly for unprotected tailings slopes. The lateral spread of the data at a slope angle of about 11.5 (33) arises because the experimental data were obtained from slopes

Tailings Basin Stability and Environmental Protections What are tailings? Tailings are the rock that is left after ore has been mined, crushed, processed and stripped of its economic metals. The silt and sand like material is mixed with water and pumped

Theriault 1, John Frostiak2, paste tailings will flow to a slope on the order of 3 to 10 degrees, provided the central discharge point that result in beach slope angles typically about 2 degrees.

Tailings beach slope prediction Tim Fitton Abstract Tailings (mining waste) disposal is a significant consideration for the mining industry, with the majority of the ore processed in most mining operations ending up as tailings. This creates large volumes of tailings, which must be handled and stored responsibly to avoid
