Webinar Recording: Austmine's Sustainability Series - Managing Mining's Waste
The recording is now available for part 1 of Austmine's Sustainability Series on Managing Mining's Waste.
Waste materials generated throughout the extraction and processing of minerals can often have disastrous consequences for the environment if left unmanaged. Furthermore, there have been several high-profile tailings dam failures that have fixed the spotlight on this issue of waste management and demonstrated the catastrophic impacts it can have on local communities.
This webinar featured leading industry experts who discussed the current landscape of mining waste and key innovations to tackle this critical challenge.
Our presenters were:
- Ben Adair, CEO, ORE - Reducing Waste Upstream in the Mining Process
- David Williams, Professor of Geotechnical Engineering & Director, Geotechnical Engineering Centre, University of QLD - Use of High Performance Fibres to Enhance Tailings Parameters
- Sue Aitken, Principal Geotechnical Engineer & Manager Mining Services, Beca - Dry Stack Tailings
