Introduction to thickened tailings in minerals processing

Presented by

Jason Palmer, Sales Director, Surface Tailings Solutions

About this talk

Introducing a series of webinars on tailings dewatering, the first webinar will introduce thickening followed by sessions on tailings filtration and water treatment. Each webinar will cover the topic from equipment to plant, taking a holistic view of the issues that enable and constrain the technology. With thickening, we review the basics of thickener operation and equipment selection, and then expand the concept to thickened tails transport and deposition. Controls and automation can significantly improve the performance of a thickener plant, keeping the outputs as close as possible to the design, maximizing water recovery and minimizing flocculant consumption. Closing with a view from an operator’s perspective, including strategies for consistent performance and tips for avoiding process upsets.
