Paste tailings disposal in the Coeur d’Alene Mining District

Mining Engineering, 2014, Vol. 66, No. 11, pp. 52-52
Brackebusch, Grant A.


ABSTRACT:

Paste tailings disposal was successfully implemented at the New Jersey mill in Kellogg, ID with two different types of ore feed, a gold ore and a silver ore. The purpose of this paper is to describe the production of paste tailings, including operational problems during commissioning, and also highlight the environmental and economic benefits that were realized versus conventional tailings disposal such as the recycling of process water, increased shear strength and reduced permeability of the tailings mass, and reduced environmental permitting.
