GLOBAL TAILINGS MANAGEMENT CONGRESS 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.
KEY TOPICS BEING COVERED INCLUDE:
- STRIKING THE PERFECT BALANCE BETWEEN COMPLIANCE AND BUSINESS REQUIREMENTS : Evaluating and comparing existing regulatory infrastructures and frameworks: Assessing the need for transparency and clarity
- SUSTAINING ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY OPERATIONS : Working in harmony with regulatory obligations and establishing a better network of communications to prevent major disasters
- DRY CAKING: THE FUTURE OF TAILINGS MANAGEMENT : Analyzing the overall financial impact on total operating costs: short-term costs vs. long-term financial rewards
- APPLYING THE LESSONS LEARNED WITHIN OIL SANDS TAILINGS MANAGEMENT : Discussing how to improve fluid fine tailings management in order to efficiently separate contaminants
- UNDERSTANDING THE POTENTIAL OF SITES RECLAMATION AND RE-USE : Identifying the most economical and sustainable way to handle the lifetime of your mine and analyzing optimal post-closure procedures
- COMPREHENSIVELY DEALING WITH CONTAINMENT, STORAGE AND LEAKAGES : Successfully ensuring total containment in a timely fashion and how to optimize sound facility management strategies
- CUTTING COSTS AND IMPROVING PERFORMANCE WITH STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGIES : Showcasing the benefits of the latest technologies to improve tailings stabilization
WHY THIS CONGRESS IS UNIQUE:
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.
It is vital for the commercial viability of mining companies around the world that you understand how to economically manage your tailings to reduce short-term costs and long-term responsibility all whilst adhering to tightening regulatory frameworks.
Because of this, the Global Tailings Management Congress 2015, will bring together experts from leading mining companies and organizations around the world, and across the full spectrum of commodities to share best practices for optimizing tailings management: effectively monitoring, reporting and accounting for tailings.
- INDUSTRY FOCUSED : This is the only global congress tailor made for industry needs and requirements, in which only carefully selected experts will showcase studies outlining how barriers were overcome
- TAILINGS SPECIFIC : To ensure that this congress really strikes at the heart of the issues, the agenda focuses solely on the life cycle of tailings management
- MOVING ON : This congress is not only going to look at the 'liquid' version of tailings disposal, since the industry has moved on from looking exclusively at tailing ponds
