Tailings Pond Operations and Safety Monitoring



Tailings Pond Operations and Safety Monitoring

The long-term operation, embankment stability, and environmental safety of tailings/waste storage and disposal facilities are critical risk factors for the mining and energy industries. Accurate, real time data and decision support systems for management of these facilities are an essential element of business risk management and regulatory compliance. In the aftermath of high profile dam failures over the last few years in both the mining and energy industries, public concern is heightened and regulators are responding with more stringent regulations and mandates. NewFields has developed better, faster, cheaper, and safer solutions for tailings/waste facility monitoring, inspection, and operation by combining cutting edge remote sensing technology and decision support systems with an engineering team that has designed over 120 tailings dams world-wide.
