As part of a larger underground backfill system, Team Mixing Technologies designed a compact TMT Tornado 1350 slurry system supplied by a cement silo provided by Newmont Mining Corporation.

This plant supplies cementitious slurry to haul trucks loaded with aggregate on surface for initial backfill production, while construction of the main backfill plant underground is undertaken.

The slurry system was designed to work in three distinct modes. Initially, slurry was supplied on surface. The plant was then relocated and integrated into the main backfill system underground, to pre-slurry cement for the 6 cubic yard compulsory mixer. Thirdly, the backfill system has been designed to allow the slurry plant to again function as an independent slurry plant, when required.
