Paterson & Cooke is committed to sharing our specialist knowledge and skills by hosting courses that aim to equip participants with a broad understanding of the practical and theoretical issues of our key areas of expertise. We regularly present courses on slurry pipelines, thickening, mine tailings and backfill.
Filtered, Paste and Thickened Tailings Course
29 November - 2 December 2022
More about the course
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, presented in conjunction with Professor Ward Wilson of the University of Alberta, 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 next course will take place from 29 November - 2 December 2022 in Lulea, Sweden
