New Research shows Mining Industry Response to Brumadinho still weak


New research by the Responsible Mining Foundation (RMF) reveals that more than one year after the Brumadinho tailings disaster in Brazil that killed 270 people, the mining industry is still dragging its heels on the step-change measures required to prevent such catastrophic tailings failures in the future.

The recently released RMI Report 2020 reveals that while investor-led action, triggered by the Brumadinho disaster, has resulted in improved transparency on companies’ tailings storage facilities (TSF), the vast majority of companies are still unable to demonstrate that they are reviewing how effectively they are managing TSF-related risks and taking responsive actions where necessary. And critically, very few mine sites show evidence of having informed local communities about what to do in the case of a tailings-related emergency.

A new global standard on tailings management, currently being finalised, is a welcome initiative but could be significantly strengthened to become a real game-changer in terms of tailings safety. The Responsible Mining Foundation strongly recommends that the standard sets out clear requirements on the following points:

  • Public disclosure of key information at the level of individual mine sites about TSF management and safety for all stakeholders, especially investors and financiers, governments and local communities and workers.
  • Engagement with local stakeholders on issues of tailings safety and in the design and testing of emergency preparedness plans.
  • Strong mitigation measures to address the risks posed by existing TSF, including where necessary the decommissioning and removal of high-risk structures.
  • Broader accountability for tailings safety across senior management and Boards of Directors.
  • Respect for Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) as mandatory where new or expanded TSF are located in areas with Indigenous Peoples, and recommendation to expand the principle of FPIC to other potentially-impacted communities.
  • Ban on lake, riverine and marine disposal of tailings, in line with the growing momentum among international banks and multilateral lenders to stop these destructive tailings disposal methods.

About the Responsible Mining Foundation

The Responsible Mining Foundation (RMF) is an independent research organisation that encourages continuous improvement in in responsible mining across the industry by developing tools and frameworks, sharing public-interest data and enabling informed and constructive engagement between mining companies and other stakeholders. The Foundation does not accept funding or other contributions from the mining industry.

GHH develops new MX-42 for Underground Hard Mining - First in his Class

Best of its kind: GHH developed the new MK-42 dump truck with this claim in mind. In fact, in some areas it is the first in its class.

The German manufacturer of heavy machinery for civil engineering, tunnelling and mining is considered a rock in the industry. Its roots go back to 1758.

The company separated from a former industrial conglomerate, which included giants such as MAN, Roland and MTU. It became part of the Schmidt Kranz Group, which also hosts companies such as MineMaster and Hazemag. Today, GHH is nothing less than a full-range supplier in the world of rock logistics: For almost everything that drives on wheels.

In other words, plenty of good DNA to build outstanding dump trucks. The new MK-42 is now proving its worth: up to 45,000 kg payload, 19-24 m3 dump volume, maximum drive power, great turning radius, large dumping angle and excellent ergonomics and safety.
