Boliden: Production Disturbances in Aitik and Tara


As a result of increased sick leave related to covid-19 together with production disruptions in both the Aitik mine in Sweden and the Tara mine in Ireland, operating profit in the Business Area Mines is estimated to be negatively affected by close to SEK 200 m during the first quarter.

In Aitik, an increased spread of covid-19 and associated sick leave has meant that mine production has not been able to be fully maintained during the first quarter. In addition, hydraulic problems in one out of two primary mills in the concentrator plant have led to production disruptions. The total production impact in Aitik is estimated at just over 1 Mton reduced throughput in addition to seasonal variations.

Also in Tara, increased absenteeism due to Covid-19 has had a negative effect on production. In addition, a breakdown of the ore hoist has occurred in the mine. The breakdown has caused a halt in mining production, which is expected to last for a week.

The total impact on operating profit in the Business Area Mines is estimated at close to SEK  -200 m during the first quarter.

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.
