Stantec’s Resa Furey and Michael Stine talk tailings reprocessing with International Mining Magazine

Despite the promise of reprocessing tailings, we have yet to see valorization adopted on a significant scale. Resa Furey and Michael Stine aim to answer the question: What’s holding us back?

Many of the barriers are not new to the mining industry—facing technical and financial challenges. Resa and Michael go on to share examples of successful tailings rerouting for tellurium extraction, and another example of generating revenue from bauxite residue. They conclude by mentioning that creating a truly circular economy in the mining industry should be viewed as a reward in and of itself.
