Specialised Tailings Testing
ATC Williams has tested mining tailings for over 30 years to create a substantial database of test results, many of which have been calibrated against subsequent field conditions. This expertise enhances our ability to extrapolate data from laboratory to site and enables us to predict tailings behaviour confidently.
Where appropriate, slurries are flocculated before testing to match the actual conditions on-site. Many of these tests require sound professional judgement for the results to be meaningful. Our technicians have the competency and experience to assess testing procedures and accurately interpret the results.
