'wet' slurry looks like a pleonasm to me, so I suggest not to translate the word 'wet'

boues d'alimentation

"slurry" a pour équivqlent "boues". Cela nous donne "boues humides" pour "wet slurry", mais cette solution me semble redondante, car la "boue" est foncièrement "humide". Pour "ore feed", j'ai trouvé "matière d'alimentation". C'est pourquoi j'ai opté pour "boues d'alimentation".
