Tailings and Mine Waste Management for the 21st Century 2015

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2015

The inaugural Tailings and Mine Waste Management for the 21st Century Conference was held in Sydney, Australia from 27–28 July 2015. This new conference series aims to be the benchmark for sharing knowledge and experience on tailings management and sustainable mining practice in Australia and the rest of the world. The two-day technical program included keynote presentations by four distinguished professors, as well as presentations on the following themes: dewatering of tailings; geochemical characterisation, treatment and environmental impacts; geotechnical characterisation and stability analysis; operation, maintenance, closure and post-closure; planning and management; and water management, seepage and groundwater control.
