The Future of Tailings 2023

Our annual tailings report has tracked the industry's efforts to improve tailings management since the inaugural edition in 2019. Last year's report focused on how innovations in dewatering and filtration, as well as the increased use of digitalisation, have helped to improve the performance and safety of tailings facilities.

This fifth annual tailings report will build on the theme of technology and innovation in the tailings space. With our partners, we take a deep dive into how technologies such as autonomous drones, satellites, InSAR models, machine learning and digital twins are being used to monitor the health of tailings facilities, and at how smarter use of dewatering and traditional solutions are helping to reduce the risk of disaster.

The report also looks at which technologies are in the development pipeline. By putting the spotlight on the best innovations in tailings management and monitoring, we hope to play a role in helping mining companies find the ideal solutions to enable them to improve safety and stakeholder engagement in this post Brumadinho world.
