About the Seminar
The Paste and Thickened Tailings seminar series, organized every year since 1999, is the leading forum for practitioners in field to meet, deliberate, and exchange knowledge and information. The objectives of the seminar series are to disseminate the advances in technology made in the field of paste and thickened tailings, provide a forum to present and discuss field applications, and obtain feedback from practitioners working at mine sites worldwide.
The series was founded by the Australian Centre for Geomechanics (ACG).
The Paste 2014 seminar will take place in Vancouver, Canada, a major hub for mining in North America and a home to many mining companies committed to developing sustainable tailings management practices. Vancouver also hosts a large number of consulting companies that develop designs and implement plans for global tailings management projects. Paste 2014 will be a truly international examination of tailings practices, with an emphasis on stacking with paste or filtered tailings.
