The benefits of tailings dewatering center on increased tailings strength and a reduction in the volume of stored water. Use of tailings as mine backfill reduces surface-storage requirements and allows for beneficial tailings reuse. Barr specializes in finding solutions to the technical challenges presented by implementation of paste, filtered tailings, and mine backfill such as pumping of high-yield stress tailings and adaptive control systems that maintain constant ratio control in a variable environment.
