Tailings Dams (May 2014) – MODULES 1 to 4 (Full Seminar)
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.
