Experimental Study on Strength Characteristics of Concrete with Gold Ore Tailings as Fine Aggregates
Mandeep G,  Rudresh A N
Global consumption of natural sand is very high due to extensive use of concrete. In particular, the demand for natural sand is quite high in developing countries owing to rapid infrastructural growth. Because of scarcity, construction industries are in stress to identify alternative materials to lesser or eliminate the demand for natural sand. Some alternative materials have already been used as a part of natural sand. For example; fly ash, slag, iron ore tailings and limestone and siliceous stone powder were used in concrete mixtures as a partial replacement of natural sand. Gold ore tailings are a common type of solid waste in KGF and have caused serious problems as landfill. If tailings are not disposed properly, it can damage human health and disrupt agriculture. As a result, an attempt has been made to study the strength characteristics of M20 grade concrete with different percentages of replacement of natural sand by gold ore tailings varying from 0 to 100%.
Keywords- Ordinary Portland Cement; Gold Ore Tailings; Compressive strength; Split tensile strength.
