Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management
Strengthening current practices in the mining industry by integrating social, environmental, local economic and technical considerations, the Standard covers the entire tailings facility lifecycle – from site selection, design and construction, through management and monitoring, to closure and post-closure.
Participation in the consultation process was facilitated via email, an online portal, a number of webinars and through a total of 21 workshops in Australia, Chile, China, Ghana, Kazakhstan and South Africa. More than 600 individuals and organisations provided feedback.
