Avonbank Mineral Sands Project – Horsham, Victoria

Type: Mineral Sands

Country: Australia

Review of the proposed in-pit tailings storage system. This review resulted in additional testwork which not only confirmed that the proposed flocculated tailings facility was stable and could be rehabilitated relatively quickly with the site being returned to agricultural use, but also resulted in the pit walls for mining being steepened to recover more ore. This project is yet to be completed.
