Bureau Veritas has tremendous experience in tailings characterization and inventory management

Through the release of Directive 085 the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) establishes the newest expectations for mine operator tailings management, which is to evaluate the entire tailings inventory rather than the strength of the mature fine tailings alone. Tailings ponds are typically evaluated using a cross-sectional grid framework with samples collected at intervals from the solid/liquid interface to the settled solids below with analytical analyses varying between programs.
