Fifty-seven major tailings disasters since 2000 – free guide

Last month marked the two-year anniversary of one of the most significant tailings dam failures in history – the Córrego do Feijão operation in Brumadinho, Brazil which took 270 people’s lives.

Tailings are the waste materials created as part of the mining and refining process and they are stored in large embankments – tailings storage facilities (TSFs).

TSFs pose a significant risk to communities, stakeholders, and the mining company’s social license to operate if they are not properly monitored and managed with proactive measures in place.

Decipher has put together a free, comprehensive guide that looks at the major tailings dam failures globally over the past 20 years, with failures in:

  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • China
  • Peru
  • Mexico
  • Philippines
  • And many more…

Decipher’s tailings governance and monitoring solution is trusted by environmental, tailings, geotechnical and management teams globally, providing the tools to help companies make decisions towards improving compliance, minimising risk and securing insurance cover.
