Tailings and Mine Waste 2019

Thank you to everyone that attended Tailings and Mine Waste 2019.  This year we welcomed over 800 participants attending from over 25 countries around the world, making it the world’s largest gatherings of Tailings and Mine Waste experts.

Mine waste managers, engineers involved with tailings management and reclamation, regulators and researchers convened to present ideas, learn of new developments and technologies, make professional contacts and discuss issues related to the impact of mine wastes on the environment. Delegates had the opportunity to learn from over 120 speakers presenting paper and poster sessions as well as a variety of short courses

Please note: Conference proceedings were available on a USB attached to the clip of the blue Tailings and Mine Waste 2019 lanyard provided on-site. Individual presentations and slide show materials are not publicly available and should be requested from the speakers directly. 

Conference Themes:
