This report offers a preliminary appraisal of the material properties of a local fill proposed for use in the Warrego Mine, Northern Territory; and seeks to define significant factors for the stabilization of such fill. Grading, density, additive composition and stability to mine water are considered in relation to strength of the natural and stabilized material. These tests are complemented by model studies which seek to reproduce, on a greatly reduced scale, the filling conditions as given. From the model studies, estimates are made of the role of density, moisture content, segregation and angle of repose (cohesion and friction) in bulk properties of the placed fill. /Author/TRRL/
