How much of your tailings are lost to wind erosion?

On the surface, it’s easy to understand that wind can have an impact on the erosion of mine tailings. But do you how much of an impact? Left untreated, 95 percent of the tailings will disappear in just 25 minutes. Treat the mine tailings with Soiltac and only 0.2 percent will erode – even after 8 hours of testing.
