Slurry pipeline is a specially engineered pipeline that is used to move ores such as coal and iron or mining waste known as tailings over long distances. A mixture of the ore concentrate and water, known as slurry, is pumped to its destination and the water is filtered out.

Slurry pipeline is a specially engineered pipeline that is used to move ores such as coal and iron or mining waste known as tailings over long distances. A mixture of the ore concentrate and water, known as slurry, is pumped to its destination and the water is filtered out. Due to the abrasive properties of slurry, the pipelines can be lined with high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Slurry pipelines are used as an alternative to railroad transportation when mines are located in remote, largely inaccessible areas. At the end of the pipeline, the ores are separated from the water, which is then treated through wastewater processes and piped back to the mine for reuse. The remaining slurry is then disposed of.
