We have just updated the Tailings Management online course by Robert C. Lo!
This course takes a comprehensive look at all aspects of tailings management–from tailings generation and storage facility design through operation to closure and decommissioning. The author has made updates related to recent tailings storage facility failures, including an update on the Mount Polley tailings dam case history (2014) and a new case history about the Samarco Fundão tailings dam (2015).
This course is intended for those whose work or interest is related to tailings management: designers, operators, and managers of tailings facilities as well as the general public and regulators. Since the consequences of a tailings storage facility failure are generally significant, it is the responsibility of anyone involved in the design, construction, operation, or closure of a tailings facility to be fully cognisant of every aspect of tailings management.
