who will deliver a presentation on:

Economic Considerations for the Practical Reprocessing of Historic Tailings in a Remote Canadian Community


Abstract: Justin Taylor will discuss a Tailings Reclamation / Retreatment Project that Halyard Inc is undertaking in Central Newfoundland at a historical mining site. The project deals primarily with the recovery of an industrial mineral that is sold to the offshore drilling industry and also with a combination recovery of base and precious metals. Valuable materials are present in tailings that are distributed between a government owned tailings facility, historical covered re-vegetated areas and within a natural water course. These activities require consideration for correcting past practises and minimizing environmental impacts during reclamation whilst still remaining economically viable to the owners.

He is the founder and president of Halyard Inc. which is a growing company based in Toronto that has successfully executed projects covering the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia.

Justin has always been driven by the need to build and provide quality projects that make a difference by virtue of their effectiveness. As a Professional Engineer he is the technical lead at Halyard and a QP for National Instrument 43-101 documents. The Halyard Team is made up of young, enthusiastic and like-minded people who enjoy what they do.
