Tailings Dams (May 2014) – MODULE 1
Background & Management Considerations
Tailings dams are critical elements in most mine operations throughout Australia but it is evident that many of these dams have not been implemented and sustainably managed in line with modern day “risk management” approaches. This course is being provided to assist tailings dam owners, and their professional staff and advisers to provide up-to-date information on how to plan, implement, operate and sustainably close their dams in a safe and effective manner consistent with various Government and “duty of care” obligations.

Hydrometeorology and Hydrology (September 2013) – MODULE 1
Welcome & Closure
Guidance for design flood estimation is provided in Australian Rainfall and Runoff. Since the last edition in 1987 there has been development and increasing application of stochastic simulation approaches for design flood estimation. There has been associated improved information and more sophisticated treatment of inputs such as design rainfalls, areal reduction factors, losses, baseflow and initial contents of reservoirs. A significant development has been the recent release of the new IFD estimates from the Bureau of Meteorology. The session will cover improved approaches to design flood estimation such as Mont-Carlo analysis and the characterisation of inputs.
