Teck and UBC Mining Breakfast Panel - Innovation in Tailings Management 

Teck and UBC’s Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering are excited to host a panel discussion on innovation in tailings management.

There is a need to accelerate innovation and expand education in the tailings and mine waste management space. The panel, comprised of experts from industry and academia, will explore the changes needed to scale the development and implementation of technologies to enhance safety and sustainability in the design, operation and closure of tailings storage facilities, and to attract new generations of engineers into this field.

The panel will provide insights into research advances, educational gaps and the socio-economic issues related to tailings management.

UBC is driving much-needed interdisciplinary collaboration on this complex problem. Join us to learn how we can work together to envisage sustainable mining futures.

Panel to be moderated by Chris Anderson, Director, Tailings, Teck.
