This course is about the concepts, techniques, and tools for risk assessment and decision-making applicable to the management of mine geowaste facilities. The course focuses on managing the design, operation, and closure of mine waste facilities such as tailings facilities, waste rock dumps, and spent heap leach pads using risk assessment, formal decision-making methods, and management tools and procedures.
The topics addressed are key to the success of mining projects and their impact on the environment, as closed mine waste disposal facilities are new terraforms that will be there in perpetuity. If they are designed, constructed, operated, and closed properly, the mine is justifiable; if not, the mine should not be allowed to open or operate. If the geowaste facility is part of a mine that generates corporate and social benefits and entails risks that are below tolerable thresholds, then the mine is sustainable and can be allowed to operate. If the risks are not manageable, the mine may not be opened.
