Tailings Management and Governance

The safe and responsible management of mine tailings is a major issue. This includes design, construction and maintenance of tailings storage facilities, management of associated risks, implementation of filtration and dewatering technologies, and rehabilitation of tailings-affected areas, implementation of GISTM, tailings management systems, geotechnical and geochemical monitoring. 

Community Involvement and Social Responsibility

Involvement of local communities and social responsibility are increasingly important issues in water and tailings management in the mining industry. This involves consultation and collaboration with affected communities, the disclosure of clear and transparent information, and the implementation of sustainable development programs. 

Water Management and Governance

The mining industry is increasingly focused on sustainable water management, including the reduction of water consumption, water reuse and recycling, and the implementation of more water-efficient technologies, the impact of climate change and the impact of the El Niño phenomenon (coastal, global). Adequate treatment of wastewater generated in mining operations is a critical issue. This involves the removal of contaminants and reduction of environmental impacts before water is released into the environment, with a focus on mine closure. Adoption of a watershed approach. Understanding the social, cultural, economic and environmental value of water in watershed areas to identify water management risks and materials and provide a context for operational and corporate management of this resource.

Environmental Management and Monitoring

Environmental monitoring and control of mining operations, including water quality monitoring, assessment of environmental impacts, and implementation of mitigation measures is a key issue to ensure the protection of water resources and the   compliance with environmental regulations, know the strategic value of water in mining projects. 

Innovation and Technology

The mining industry is constantly looking for new technologies and innovations to improve water and tailings management. This includes the development of more efficient treatment technologies, the use of artificial intelligence and data analysis for decision making, and the implementation of more sustainable solutions (proven technology providers). 

Design and Construction of Vessel Reservoirs and Water Dams

The design and construction of tailings impoundments and water dams require a comprehensive approach that considers geotechnical, hydrological and structural aspects. These processes must ensure the stability, safety and efficiency of the structures, as well as compliance with environmental and water quality requirements.

Geotechnical and Geochemical Monitoring and Management

Geotechnical and geochemical management and monitoring of tailings dams are essential to ensure safety and environmental protection. Geotechnical management focuses on dam stability, while geochemical management focuses on water quality control and prevention of environmental damage or significant impacts. Both aspects must be considered comprehensively in the operation of tailings dams. 

Tailings impoundment closure and post-closure management

Closure and post-closure management of tailings impoundments is essential to ensure stability, safety and environmental protection once the mining operation has ended. This management includes closure planning, control of water quality, stability of the deposit, rehabilitation of the affected area and long-term monitoring. It is important to consider for the success of closure and post-closure to have a knowledge base and to apply adaptive management throughout the life of the deposit.
