The Australian Centre for Geomechanics is pleased that the 22nd International Conference on Paste, Thickened and Filtered Tailings will be held in Cape Town, South Africa from 8–10 May 2019, in collaboration with Paterson & Cooke.

This will be the fifth time that the event will be held in Southern Africa: Pilanesberg (2001), Cape Town (2004), Botswana (2008) and Rustenburg (2012). Southern Africa, as a region, is water scarce and has experienced severe droughts for the last few years. Together with changes in local legislation requiring facilities to be lined, there is a renewed interest in paste and thickened tailings and dry stack filter options in the region. Local attendance will target Southern African countries in particular, with delegates expected from Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, DRC and further afield. We look forward to welcoming you to Cape Town in 2019!
