Cyclone Mineral Sands Project – Rawlinna, WA

Type: Mineral Sands

Country: Australia

Tailings from the processing comprise two streams that were to be mixed in the tailings hopper before being pumped to the discharge point. The sand stream, with a maximum particle size of 1 mm, comprises the majority of tailings. Initial deposition was a standalone stack with the discharge point extending longitudinally along the crest of the stack. After development of mine voids, the tailings stream was diverted into the sterile mine voids.
