Using Slimes for Backfill in Deep Mines.
Min Cong J 1976 Apr; 62(3):22-26
The ability of electrokinetics to solve a particular solid/liquid separation problem requires experimental verification. Laboratory tests on mill tailings from the Coeur d'Alene Mining District in Idaho were conducted by Bureau of Mines personnel at the Spokane (Washington) Mining Research Center. Results indicated that this very simple process could be effective, economical, and easily expanded to treat large quantities of sandfill.
