Also the Slurry Systems Handbook by BAHA E. Abulnaga (2002) and yes a good book on the overall mineral processing plant design from the SME is below:

Mular, A.L., Barratt, D.J., and Halbe, D.N., Eds., Mineral Processing Plant Design, Practice, and Control (2 Volume Set), SME, 2002.

Also the Warman pump handbook is good for pump design:

Also try PCCE, they are specialist slurry pipeline engineering company based in Cape Town, South Africa. They do hydraulic system designs for heavy duty applications. Paste thickened tailings, mine backfill etc.

They did splendid job for us in 2001 for high density and volumetric slurry disposal system design work in collaboration with Weir.
