Further, the problems associated with debris found in MFT deposits are also reduced or eliminated because the debris is prevented from entering the hollow conduit 11 by its continuous all-round surrounding wall s.

Experimental study of dessication of soil.
Overall, TSRU tailings exhibited different geotechnical properties when compared with the well-studied mature fine tailings, highlighting the need for further studies to provide information for the management of TSRU tailings. In general, however, the MFT fill level will always be lower than the free water surface, because the fluid inside the hollow conduit 11 has a higher density than the fluid outside the hollow conduit The buoyancy device 6 can be made of steel, aluminum, or other materials suitable for cold weather applications. There is room for improvement in the management of oil sands tailings ponds and the processing of tailings stored therein. Environmental Geotechnics 2 5:
