Rio Tinto has revised how it will manage tailings facilities to comply with the Global Industry Standard for Tailings Management (GISTM).
The mining industry generally agrees that one area where mining firms need to focus on is the management of tailings storage facilities.
Mining companies are acutely aware of the risks and challenges that tailings storage facilities (TSFs) pose and understand that a rupture or failure can result in significant consequences such as loss of life, environmental damage, impact their social license to operate and ESG rating, and may encounter possible financial hardship.
Decipher has created a tailings storage facility cloud solution to help mining companies improve governance, monitoring, reporting and disclosure of tailings data.
Inmarsat has launched two new Tailings Insight propositions in support of mining companies that are looking to improve data governance and transparency.
With increased pressure to improve tailings management, it is more important than ever to look at different methods to improve this process.
