Abstract

Gideon Yowa investigated the possibility of using pozzolans to partially replace cement in mine filling to reduce the filling cost and make backfilling more environmentally friendly. He found that when pozzolans replace cement partially, the strength attained was comparable to the strength that pure cement attained. The results are useful for underground mines that use cemented paste fill.
