Mine Tailings and Waste Management

Many of the everyday products we enjoy contain minerals, and the demand for these raw materials continues to grow. However, mineral extraction generates tailings and waste that mining operators must manage responsibly to minimize the environmental impact of their operations while ensuring the safety of neighbouring communities.

How can you successfully fulfill your regulatory and social obligations without eating away at your profit margins? It’s important to be aware of the real costs associated with your mine waste and tailings, and to ensure their rigorous planning and management.
