The authors wish to make the following corrections to this paper [1]: Toda, K.; Sato, H.; Weerakoon, N.; Otake, T.; Nishimura, S.; Sato, T. Key Factors Affecting Strength Development of Steel Slag-Dredged Soil Mixtures. Minerals 2018, 8, 174.

1. Change in Main Body Paragraphs

On page 2 of 16, lines 90–91, the sentence “Purified humic acid content was highest in soil D (2.04%) followed by C (1.23%), A (1.02%) and B (0.74%)” should be “Purified humic acid content was highest in soil D (0.30%) followed by B (0.20%), C (0.14%) and A (0.09%)”. Consequently, on page 11 of 16, lines 320–322, the sentence “This suggests that the content of humic acids in soils A, B, C and D (0.74–2.04%) is not sufficient to act as a pH buffer” should be “This suggests that the content of humic acids in soils A, B, C and D (0.09–0.30%) is not sufficient to act as a pH buffer”.
These changes have no material impact on the conclusions of our paper. We apologize to our readers.

2. Change in Table

Due to mislabeling, replace Table 2:
Table 2. Mineral dissolution rates and surface areas of silica-bearing phases loaded in the geochemical modeling as reactants.
Table 2. Mineral dissolution rates and surface areas of silica-bearing phases loaded in the geochemical modeling as reactants.
