Dry Stack
Tailings Management

The current act of receiving potable water by simply turning a tap hides a looming concern: we are likely to have to deal with water shortages in the not too distant future. As we continue to take access to water for granted, we forget that every drop counts! If we do not follow a more responsible and sustainable behavior regarding our current water usage, there will not be enough drops of water left to count.

Unfortunately, this scenario is already a sad reality in some areas, countries, industries and sectors of the world. Demand for domestic, commercial and industrial water is projected to increase and sustainable water management is therefore becoming an increasingly important and challenging issue for mining operations around the world, especially those that operate in areas of the planet where water conservation is critical.
