This research aims to assist in the assessment of tailings management technologies through the development of a dynamic simulation model. The developed model (TMSim) incorporates the mine plan, various stages of dewatering including classification, pre- and post-deposition dewatering, and an...
This research aims to improve oil sands tailings treatment by applying a combination of quick lime (calcium oxide) and anionic or cationic polymers in the flocculation process. A procedure including mixing lime, dilution of mature fine tailings (MFT) in the lime supernatant and addition of...
Oilsands tailings are a waste product comprising primarily a stable alkaline suspension of clay in water. This waste product of oilsands mining is environmentally hazardous to store and expensive to safely dispose of. This work presents two novel ideas for dealing with the waste. The first is...
