Sam Abbaszadeh and Amanda Adams were featured in Global Mining Review to assess opportunities to attract the next generation of tailings engineers

Engineers of Record (EOR) oversee all aspects of a tailings storage facility and need a varied and specialized skillset. Adoption of the role has increased in recent years, thanks in part to the Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management, which requires EOR on certain tailings projects.

Stantec’s Sam Abbaszadeh, Tailings and Waste Technical Practice Lead, and Amanda Adams, Principal, Mining, Minerals, and Metals, were featured in Global Mining Review (GRM) whey they share their career paths in tailings and why they like the industry so much. They also discuss how to recruit and retain the next generation of tailings practitioners into EOR roles for tailings storage facilities.
