18 Oct Overview of Tailings Management in the Mining Industry
The Global Mining Guidelines Group (GMG), in collaboration with Cambrian College, has developed a landscape of tailings management activities in the mining industry (view it here). This study of guidance documents, project initiatives and standards from around the world provides an understanding of existing practices and initiatives covering mine tailings throughout the global mining industry.
“Our community of global mining stakeholders has expressed strong interest in a GMG strategy on tailings management,” says GMG Managing Director Heather Ednie. “This environmental landscape is a key first step in understanding how to leverage and support existing work and identifying where we can help to fill gaps.”
The GMG community is also welcome to add any missing pieces to the landscape by filling out the form on the webpage.
