Mine Residue Disposal

Waste from extractive operations is one of the largest waste streams in the European Union and Africa. With continually increasing demand for specific resources this stream is expected to increase significantly in the foreseeable future. Some of these waste streams have significantly potential for pollution and requires special consideration and treatment prior to disposal. Moreover, the management of tailings is an intrinsically risky activity, often involving residual processing chemicals and elevated levels of metals. The company’s staff has a range of experience in conceptual, bankable feasibility, and detailed design of mine residue disposal facilities. This is complemented by practical experience in the construction and operational supervision of such facilities as well as expertise in the more technically challenging fields of tailings liquefaction and flow slide analysis.
