The ability to modify the size distribution of a tailings stream to optimise backfill performance, either for hydraulic or paste fills is an opportunity not to be overlooked when evaluating a materials’ performance as a Size: 2MB. In cut-and-fill methods, blasthole stoping with delayed backfill is a method that can be applied to ore bodies that are generally tabular and vertical or near vertical.

The rock quality of both the ore and the waste needs to be fair to good. Cemented fill for the primary stopes is required when a primary/secondary plan is : Jian Deng. Backfilling Techniques and Materials in Underground Excavations: placement methods and materials that have been Of particular interest in backfilling is re-evaluation of materials and methods that have been given less attention than the clay and aggregate.

The choice of backfilling method is not only site specific, but project specific. Often project constraints such as timeline, cash flows and regional skills impact the choice of backfill method, as they rightfully should. The best method allows for the highest ore recovery at the quickest cycle time for the lowest cost; all while.

Suitable for mechanized cut and fill or avoca or other method where structural backfill is not required. Cemented Rockfill Generally consist of waste rock mixed with a cement slurry to improve the bond strength between the rock fragments.

Economical Evaluation. The cost of backfill is generally not a major cost to the entire mining process, depending on the type of backfill method being used. The costs can be expressed in either dollars per tonne of backfill or tonne of ore.

The cost ranges from % and % of the total mining cost. find areas where shafts are all abandoned or in contrary still active. some problems linked to deterioration of the sealing structure at the shaft head, or movement of backfilling material in the shaft have been observed.

ISBN: 12th International Conference on Mining with Backfill Denver, Colorado, USA 19 - 22 February Backfill material is engineered to withstand the exposed height of the primary stope it occupies when adjacent secondary stope is being mined, thus avoiding dilution of precious ore which may result from backfill failure into the secondary stope.

Thus, backfilling is one of the most critical tasks for sublevel stoping mining systems with Cited by: 1. Backfilling and subaqueous disposal technology is applicable to the following situations: • solid mining waste or MIW • can treat high volumes of material • remote or rural areas • can treat most contaminants of concern • can be used solo or in conjunction with other technologies.

Waste materials used as backfill material include waste development rock, deslimed and whole mill tailings, quarried and crushed aggregate, and metallurgical process tailings (like slag). Small amounts of cement or other pozzolanic binders are added to the waste material to improve the strength properties of the backfilled by:.

1. Introduction. Backfill is increasingly used in underground mines around the world. There are many environmental and economical benefits associated with underground backfilling for the mining industry.Nonetheless, the primary objective of stopes backfilling is to provide a safe working space for miners and to increase mineral recovery by reducing ore dilution.Cited by: and processing and certain secondary waste materials from the industry can be used to produce waste material composites (WMC)4,5 for backfilling.

Composites for backfilling must consist of those types of waste materials which have no detrimental effect on the environment, which must be proven using verified procedures and methods.
