Tailings and Dams

Stable, cost effective and legally compliant surface facilities: whether its a tailings facility, leach pad or municipal/industrial waste facility, you do not need costly surprises from instability, fluid discharges, dust emissions or any other permit violations. And, these facilities must be designed for practical operation and cost effective closure.
