About this talk

Dry stacking successes? Water efficiency is not the only driver for dry stacking. Several gold producers are implementing dry stacking in Artic environments where the sites are water positive to achieve minimum environmental impact and minimise the risk of tails spills. Climatic conditions change some of the stacking logistics. We look at some of the more recent mine sites to embrace filtered tailings Combining mine backfill and dry stacking is an attractive option for some sites, how to balance the demands of different systems. Reliability focus on critical tailings filtration infrastructure, in dry stack operations maintenance can be a labour-intensive operation and good planning is essential to achieve the best availability and keep control of costs
