Having sponsored last year's World Risk Report compiled by Mining Journal, IsoMetrix is proud to continue its support of the publication by sponsoring this year's report titled The Future of Tailings Management.

The drive to better manage tailings storage facilities (TSFs) has intensified in the two years since the Brumadinho disaster in Brazil killed 270 people, and part of the stakeholder response to the tragedy has been to log the responses to mining company disclosures.

Mining Journal and Mining Magazine have undertaken the first deep dive into this data and the corresponding report presents its analysis of the database alongside opinions from tailings experts. It also profiles a number of businesses specialising in the design, implementation, and monitoring of tailings facilities. The publication believes that the innovative solutions provided by these and other businesses will help to improve the safety of tailings facilities.

IsoMetrix is proud to be involved with the publication and the associated drive towards increased safety measures within tailings management. This year's report features an interview with IsoMetrix's Executive of Sustainability, Robin Bolton. In the interview, Robin explains how having a tailings management system (TMS) – a recommendation of the Global Industry Standard, and something which IsoMetrix provides – is key to ensuring information flows between the right people in a timely manner, and crucial to the overall effectiveness of a company’s tailings management operations.

As part of its own safety initiative, IsoMetrix has also recently contributed to this area by interviewing leaders within the mining industry and publishing a best practice guide to safe and effective tailings management. Topics addressed in the guide include knowing the warning signs regarding tailings failures, meeting the global standard, and details on preventing failures with proper management, amongst others.

As a world leading developer of EHS and ESG risk management software, IsoMetrix has been trusted by global mining companies for over 20 years. The IsoMetrix TMS is designed according to international standards and best practices, and has been developed to offer mining companies a more effective and responsive way to manage their TSFs. Using the IsoMetrix software solution, all TSF safety measures can duly be recorded, tracked, managed, and reported on as required by their organizations.
