Following our discussion of responsible Tailing Storage Facility (TSF) management, we dive a bit deeper into some of the varying technologies commonly found in any monitoring program, and how they will support your Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management (GISTM) compliance. While many of these technologies are deployed on a piecemeal basis, it is often the case that a holistic approach is greater than the sum of each individual system.
Tailings storage facilities offer a unique set of risks that touch on all areas of ESG and require heightened and disciplined management processes. Made up of multiple dams storing discarded ore and chemical solvents, often in close proximity to local communities, it’s obvious why the risk is inherent.
Modern-day real-time gas monitoring systems continue to advance the way mines streamline their post-blast re-entry protocol. Learn how advanced fixed and wireless all-in-one gas sensors increase productivity 10% – 30%, keep, personnel out of harms’ way, and contribute to your mine’s ESG journey.
Technology has been one of the most significant enablers for success in the mining industry for, well, since the beginning of the mining industry. Effective use of innovative production and safety technologies have always separated the high performers from the mediocre. But, just having technology isn’t a guarantee of added value to the bottom line.
