Evaluation of Phosphatic Clay Disposal and Reclamation Methods. Volume 3: Sedimentation Behavior of Phosphatic Clays

02-002-005Final

Abstract

The sedimentation behavior of twelve phosphatic clays was investigated. The sedimentation behavior of sand-clay mixes for three of the twelve clays were also investigated. The final settled solids contents, settling rates, and void ratio versus effective stress relations at low stresses, were determined from these test series. Settling tests on sand-clay mixes investigated the effects of initial clay solids content, sand-clay ratio, and type of sand tailings.
