Program

Program development for the 2019 Tailings and Mine Waste Conference is in progress. Abstracts are under review at present. More details on the sessions and presentations will be added shortly.

The conference, to take place in Vancouver Canada,  November 17-20, 2019, will be framed around the following two themes:

  1. Management/Governance in relation to tailings management best practices in conceptualization, design, operation, closure and post-closure
  2. Contributions to Sustainable Development across the same life-cycle stages noted for Management/Governance

Short courses and workshops will run on Sunday, November 17 and will be collaborative across the industry (e.g., include participation from owners, designers, academics, regulators, etc.) and include case histories.

The technical program will run Monday, November 18 through Wednesday, November 20, 2019.
