Increasing social Acceptance in the Management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF)

Increasing social Acceptance in the Management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF)

28. October 2021 (1940 Clicks)

Ensuring social acceptance for mining projects, and especially when it comes to settling ponds for mine tailings, is a huge challenge. Modern geomonitoring integrates data obtained from orbiting satellites, from overflying aircraft and from the surface of the ground, as well as from below it, to create a transparent and space and time-referenced process understanding. Geomonitoring technology is therefore an important tool for risk management and communication over the course of the mining lifecycle.
