Tailings Management

Tailings Management

REC tailings engineers have successfully delivered many tailings management solutions, incorporating permitting, testing, characterisation, transport, design, operations, surveillance and closure. We have hands-on experience across a comprehensive range of ore types including coal, copper, bauxite, iron-ore, gold and uranium.

Our flexible nature means we are ready to assist at any stage of a mine’s lifecycle. That said, the greatest efficiencies can be found if we are engaged at the outset. We help clients understand their tailings management options at an initial scoping level, before delivering a detailed design that best suits each site’s specific characteristics which may vary from paddock / valley style and CTD to dry stacking or in-pit tailings deposition.

Using Muk3D, deposition plans and site support are offered to maximise efficient tailings storage and deliver substantial cost savings throughout the operation of a storage facility.
