If you attended or heard about the first Tailings and Mine Waste 2011 conference (TMW) which arrived in cIRcle in 2011, then you will want to check out the upcoming TMW 2015 conference proceedings to be archived in cIRcle, UBC’s Digital Repository.

 

Leading experts from all over the globe attended the Tailings and Mine Waste 2015 conference – hosted by UBC’s Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering, in conjunction with Colorado State University and the University of Alberta – and was held in Vancouver, British Columbia on October 25-28, 2015.

 

Having over 30 years’ experience himself in research, teaching and consulting in tailings and mined earth structures, the conference Chair and University of British Columbia Professor, Dr. Dirk van Zyl noted that the conference was going to be “exciting and informative” as it would feature “technical specialists sharing the highest standards of technical, environmental, safety and social practices in North America and around the world.”

 

Sharing the latest, innovative ways for sustainable tailings and mine waste management well into the future by offering the best practices, case histories, timely topics and technologies possible, these experts engaged a wide audience – from student to faculty researchers, scientists and engineers to mine waste managers, regulators, professional agencies and others in the mining industry.

 

Key topics presented in the 90+ accepted abstracts included timely topics such as “mine waste facilities design, management systems planning, case histories, environmental engineering, closure and reclamation”.

 

What’s next? Watch for Part II of our TMW 2015 conference proceedings’ blog post coming soon!
