Global Tailings Management Congress 2015
Organization: American Business Conferences
|Event Date/Time: Mar 17, 2015||End Date/Time: Mar 18, 2015|
THE ONLY CONGRESS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE MINING INDUSTRY WHERE SPEAKERS WILL OFFER PRACTICAL, COMMERCIAL SOLUTIONS FOR OPTIMIZING TAILINGS MANAGEMENT
Recent catastrophic incidents, most notably Mount Polley in Canada in August 2014, have exemplified the pressing need to assess how tailings management in its entirety is to be made more efficient and environmentally safe, but to date, there has surprisingly been no industry gathering tailored to ensure that such failures are not repeated.
As a consequence of accidents and public pressure, regulatory bodies are constantly tweaking the rules and regulations for tailings management, which are becoming more stringent and in some cases even unclear, and as a consequence operators are being compelled to invest more time and resources to fundamentally lower their environmental footprints. To achieve this in a timely fashion and in the most cost-effective manner, innovative strategies need to be explored that in many cases feature cutting-edge technologies. Essentially, an improved network of communications must exist so that the relevant organisations, regulatory bodies and expert individuals are working in harmony to securely manage and store tailings and thus mitigate any breaches which can have fatal consequences.WHAT TO EXPECT
To this end, the inaugural Global Tailings Management Congress 2015, HARD ROCK MINING AND OIL SANDS is coming to Denver, Colorado on March 17-18 2015. Bringing together leading operators to identify the best methodologies and instrumentation for tailings management, including case studies outlining the potential benefits of Dry Stacking using innovative techniques for tailings De-Watering, improving Fluid Fine Tailings Management, and establishing optimal Reclamation Post Operations.
Fundamentally, by mapping out the entire life cycle of tailings management, this congress aims to create an improved network of communications between operators, vendors and regulators to achieve total containment, mitigate risks and optimize operational proficiency.
