The way tailings are handled can have a long-term impact on the mines’ economic efficiency as well as on the ecology. High capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operating expenses (OPEX) are the two key elements of profitability which have been a barrier for mining companies to invest in dewatering solutions. However, with the advent of more effective and energy efficient dewatering technologies, dry filtered tailings is seen as a more competitive and safer solution for tailings management. In this webinar Metso expert, Rodrigo Gouveia, will give insights on how dry stacking is becoming an economically viable solution.
In this webinar, you will learn:
Life-cycle-cost comparison between wet and dry tailings
Effect of new tailings management technologies in dry tailings cost
