Tailings management

The Leading Practice Sustainable Development Program (LPSDP) for the Mining Industry promotes sustainable mining practices.

The program developed a series of handbooks which provide mining managers, communities and regulators with practical information on leading practice approaches to mining management.

This handbook focuses on a systematic, risk-based approach to tailings management. It provides examples of tailings containment, disposal and rehabilitation, and points to future trends in tailings management.
