Scholarcy highlights

  • The use of mining tailings to stabilize the materials normally used in civil works is already a fairly common practice
  • The iron reject studied comes from the Iron Quadrangle and the gold is from northwestern Minas Gerais, Brazil
  • It was possible to know the characteristics of these materials when they are in contact with water as a means of dissolution, allowing the evaluation of the influence of such aspects on the behavior of the mixtures and to evaluate the potential use of these materials in civil works
