The 19th International Seminar on Paste and Thickened Tailings was held from 5-8 July, Santiago, Chile. It was a continuation of the Paste Seminar series, initiated by Australian Centre for Geomechnics (ACG) in 2000.

“The seminar has become an international forum where all professionals and executives involved in tailings can analyse and discuss innovations and developments concerning design, construction and operation, technologies of tailings disposal, mine backfill, thickening, rheology, and the rapidly emerging field of inline injection of polymers at discharge, among other topics.

This book contains 53 abstracts written by delegates from 14 different countries on topics that include: plenary presentations (2); Thickening (10); Filtering, Rheology (6); Slurry Chemistry (5); Tailings Slurry transport (6); Tailings Beach Slope (6); Testing (4); Case Studies (14).”

The proceedings comprise a black and white printed abstract booklet with a code to access and download the seminar papers. Each file can only be downloaded three times. After the three downloads, the files will only be accessible if you have saved them on your computer or mobile device.

Also available is the updated Paste and Thickened Tailings – A Guide (3rd Edition).
