Abstract

Hydraulic and physical characteristics were evaluated using field and laboratory techniques for several tailings basins in Northeast Minnesota. A particle density of 3. 085 gm/cm**3 was determined as representative of all materials evaluated. Infiltration capacities ranged from 1. 09 cm/hr on fine basin material to more than 12. 7 cm/hr on unvegetated coarse dike material.
