English term or phrase:particle S.G.
Rock fill quantities required to form embankments for the storage of 500 million tons of tailing are shown below. For storage calculation purposes, and pending further testing of representative tailing samples, the assumed average in-situ tailing dry density has been taken as 1,40 t/m3. This may be a low figure based on the ***particle S.G.*** and relatively coarse grading but has been used because the valley is narrow and the rate of filling into the basin is very fast, thereby hindering drainage and consolidation of the tailing. If an even lower density will apply in practice, then excess tailing may have to be stored elsewhere, possibly by co-disposal with excess mine waste in the Gallo rock dump.
