Reducing Risk - Dams & Tailings - Request A Demo

“Losses exceeding US$100 million and 60% chance of permanent shutdown of the mine”

There are various elements of risk present in a tailing’s life cycle across planning and design, construction, operation, monitoring, modification, decommissioning and aftercare. Tailings dam failures are often the result of multiple contributors but according to Accenture, 80% of these causes are controllable.

The Impact

Failure to properly manage this risk can result in:

  • A profound impact on your company’s bottom line
  • Severely eroding share value
  • Suspension of operations
  • Mine closure
  • Loss of life / fatalities
  • Community and environmental damage
  • Brand and reputational damage

According to the Australian Government, evidence from well-known Dams & Tailings failures shows that a “major failure can not only cause deaths but can result in a one-third loss of market capitalisation, clean-up costs and direct losses exceeding US$100 million and potential class action costs of up to twice that, with an average 60% chance of permanent shutdown of the mine.”
