Skip to Main Content

The effects of clay on the geotechnical properties of oil-sands tailings deposits are discussed. The sources of fluid fine tailings are reviewed, and types of tailings deposits are described. The effects of clay on geotechnical index properties, hydraulic conductivity, compressibility, and shear strength are discussed, with example predictions for consolidation and strength gain in fines-enriched sand tailings and deep fines-dominated tailings deposits.
