Geosynthetics & Risk Mitigation in Tailings

Join Austmine and Geofabrics for an exciting and informative webinar on mine tailings safety

Austmine Nobackground

In recent years, the new Global Industry Standard for Tailings Management (GISTM) was introduced to mitigate the risk of tailings dam failures, improving how historically high-risk assets are managed. Engineers of Record (EoR) play a large role in risk mitigation, as do geosynthetics. Achieving the right design of a waste containment is critical for long-term performance, ensuring that an asset complies with regulations while limiting failure risk and appeasing public perception.

In this presentation, Ben Lewis will discuss the containment solutions available and the various impacts, benefits, and drawbacks they may have on the long-term performance of tailings storage facilities.
