Yield stress measurements were carried out on slurries prepared from five different ore samples of varying contents of bitumen and fines in the sand fraction. The rheological measurements were performed using the vane, slump, and relaxation methods, as well as by extrapolation of equilibrium flow curves to zero shear rate. In the case of the vane tests, it was found that the yield stress values agreed better with the results obtained from the other techniques when the yield stresses were… CONTINUE READING
