How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

The Clean TeQ Sunrise Project in New South Wales is one of the largest and highest-grade cobalt-nickel deposits outside Africa. It also contains one of the largest and highest-grade scandium deposits in the world. The Clean TeQ Sunrise Project will utilise conventional pressure acid leaching (PAL) for metal dissolution and Clean-iX® continuous Resi...
Conventional mineral waste disposal involves pumping dilute concentration suspensions of tailings to large catchment areas, where the solids settle to form a consolidated base while the excess water is evaporated. Unfortunately, this often takes years, if ever, to occur, and the interim period poses a severe threat to the surrounding countryside an...
The increased adoption of paste tailings has been facilitated by the improved ability to produce and handle high solids concentration slurry/paste systems. A combination of technological developments and an understanding of the flow behaviour (rheology) of tailings throughout the paste production, transport and deposition process allow for effectiv...
see: https://papers.acg.uwa.edu.au/p/1363_05_Sofra/ Washing circuits at lateritic ore refineries can experience operational issues associated with the end of the washing circuit, where washer overflow becomes excessively turbid, the underflow thickens to the point that the rake cannot move it to the outlet, operation becomes unstable and underflow...
Dry disposal represents a paradigm shift in mining engineering. The tailings are engineered to suit the disposal requirements, as opposed to engineering a facility to accommodate the tailings. It is, therefore, important to understand how the material properties and operational parameters can be modified to produce the desired transport and deposit...
Technological advancements in mineral processing have increased the feasibility of refining low-grade ores. Because of this progression and continual depletion of high-grade ore deposits, much larger volumes of waste material are produced. At the same time, increasing environmental legislation and cost competitiveness dictate that these wastes be d...
