This paper highlights the importance of linking regional geology to geotechnical ground investigation when estimating the pre-consolidation pressure σíp of Quaternary clay deposits from piezocone tests. The work comprises a comprehensive site characterization from boring logs, piezocone tests and laboratory oedometer tests carried out at the Tubar&atild...

Large-scale mining operations generate vast quantities of tailings that are deposited in hydraulic-fill tailing dams in the form of slurries. Stability of these impoundments require investigation of water table configuration, aquifer boundaries, site characterization and determination of short and long term properties of tailings. These aspects are evaluated in ...
