Amanda Adams speaks with International Mining about the new Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management and what it means for the mining sector

Only 19 months after the January 25, 2019 tailings dam failure in Brazil, a global tailings standard has been released. During the August 5, 2020, official online launch of the Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management, moderator Antonia Mihaylova announced that more than 2,000 participants had joined. This number represents only a fraction of the people who contributed to the development of the Standard, and an even smaller fraction of the people and companies who will ultimately be impacted by it. Principal Tailings Engineer and Project Manager Amanda Adams outlines the importance behind the release of the Standard.
