Amira Global Tailings Program
The Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management was launched on 5 August 2020. The standard provides guidance for our industry to manage its tailings responsibilities. Amira Members have recognised that implementation is key and that our industry MUST work together learn, share and improve the situation.
Importantly, shared responsibility includes resolving the persistent and growing tailings volumes. Amira has established a collaboration of mining companies who together represent over a third of the 2025 planned tailings volume. The collaboration represents major and mid-tier organisations across all commodities and operating across the globe.
The collaboration reviewed the short form proposals submitted earlier this year and short listed 10 submissions which were presented at the R&D Forum in May. An additional 16 submissions were invited to prepare presentations for consideration by Members.
Nominations for Members’ preferred submissions close on Friday 18th June. We will use the information to identify which submissions Members want to engage with, in deeper technical discussions. These Project Definition workshops will include Members who nominated the submission, along with the submission provider to define the scope and basis of a proposal.
If you have any questions please contact Sean Helm, GM Futures Development
