Paste and thickened tailings water benefits case studies

The iron recovery process sends a tailings stream to the first thickener with about 8,000 m3/h water (about 9 wt% solids). The high rate thickener produces 45~50 wt% solids and recovers about 90% of this water. The paste thickener stage recovers an additional 59% for a total recovery of 95%. The paste thickener overflow of 518 m3/h is about a 2 ...

CYANIDE RECOVERY COST EFFECTIVENESS IS WHY RECYCLE

The thickener overflow and the filtrate (containing HCN gas) are treated with lime slurry to raise the pH to about 10. This converts the HCN back to free cyanide, which is recycled to leach. The SART process is especially suited to the treatment of heap leach liquors that contain elevated concentrations of base metals as WAD cyanide complexes. SART can also be used to treat the tailings from ...

Coal preparation plant - Wikipedia

Thickeners are used for dewatering slurries of either tailings or product. A thickener is a large circular tank that is used to settle out the solid material from the water in the feed slurry. The separated water is clarified and reused as process water in the CPP. Thickeners are sized according to the volume of feed slurry to be processed.
