Mine Waste and Tailings 2018

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2018
The Mine Waste and Tailings Stewardship Conference 2018 was held from 23–24 July in Brisbane, Queensland. The second in this series it aimed to be the benchmark for sharing knowledge and experience on mine waste and tailings management, sustainable practice and closure in Australia and the rest of the world. The conference was built around the following 12 themes: co-disposal of tailings and coarse wastes, tailings dewatering, mine waste geotechnics, stability of tailings dams and tailings run-out, tailings water balance and management, operational aspects and case histories of mine waste storage, selection of tailings storage, governance and management of tailings, emerging technologies, regulation of mine waste facilities, mine waste facility closure case histories and costs, mine waste facility liner and cover systems, and mine waste geotechnics, geochemistry and biology.
