THE VOICE OF THE CANADIAN

MINING INDUSTRY SINCE 1935

A Guide to the Management of Tailings Facilities, Third Edition (Mobile)

A mobile-optimized edition of the third edition of the Guide to the Management of Tailings Facilities (the Tailings Guide).

It is with pleasure that I present, on behalf of the Mining Association of Canada (MAC), the third edition of the Guide to the Management of Tailings Facilities (the Tailings Guide).

The third edition of the Tailings Guide is another step in the continual improvement process for tailings management, moving towards the goal of minimizing harm: zero catastrophic failures of tailings facilities, and no significant adverse effects on the environment and human health.

The third edition of the Tailings Guide is another step in the continual improvement process for tailings management, moving towards the goal of minimizing harm: zero catastrophic failures of tailings facilities, and no significant adverse effects on the environment or human health. The Tailings Guide; however, is but a roadmap on this journey – to succeed, it is incumbent on MAC members and the mining industry as a whole to achieve effective implementation of the principles embodied in the Tailings Guide.
