Franco Oboni, Ph.D

who will deliver a panel discussion on:

Tailings Dam Management for the Twenty-First Century:
What Mining Companies Need to Know and Do to Thrive in Our Complex World

 

The talk presents a comprehensive approach to address the need to improve the design of tailings dams, their management and the regulation of tailings management facilities to reduce, and eventually eliminate, the risk of such facilities failing (book available at springer.com/gp/book/9783030194468). The scope of the challenge is well documented in the report by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and GRID Arendal entitled “Mine Tailings Storage: Safety Is No Accident,” which was released in October 2017 and identifies several areas where further improvements are required. In this context, the application of cutting-edge risk-assessment methodologies and risk-management practices can contribute to a significant reduction and eventual elimination of dam failures through Risk Informed Decision Making. The discussion focuses on identifying and describing the risk-assessment approaches and risk-management practices to be implemented in order to develop a way forward to achieve socially acceptable levels of tailings dams’ risks.
