Abstract
The purpose of this study was to develop procedures to measure Bingham flow properties for mine tailings and to use these procedures to predict the possible consequences of a hypothetical tailings flow failure at the Tenmile Tailings Pond at Climax, Company Values of ty (Bingham yeild shear strength) and np (plastic viscosity) were measured for 10 materials using results obtained from vaned coaxial viscometer and triaxial tests. It was concluded that the consequences of such a failure were minimal and the failure itself was highly unlikely.
