Tailings 2.0: Space observation, quantitative risk assessment bring value and comply with societal demands

Tailings 2.0: Space observation, quantitative risk assessment bring value and comply with societal demands

May 9th, 2018

At the coming Tailings and Mine Waste conference (TMW2018) Riskope and MDA will jointly present a one day course entitled “Tailings 2.0: Space observation, quantitative risk assessment bring value and comply with societal demands

Tailings 2.0: Space observation, quantitative risk assessment bring value and comply with societal demands

During the “Tailings 2.0: Space observation, quantitative risk assessment bring value and comply with societal demands” course we will review state of the art risk assessment methodologies and space observation technologies that together deliver world-class Quantitative Risk Assessments (QRA) allowing Risk Informed Decision Making (RIDM).

Indeed, the approach we call Tailings 2.0 proposes a synergistic approach. It encompasses an updatable, scalable, drillable and convergent Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) platform and Space Observation monitoring. Of course Space Observation can be the main or complementary approach to extant classic monitoring programs.

Skill building objectives

During the course we will build and train some specific skills. These will enable you to build and discuss robust QRAs complemented by Space Observation (InSAR and Optical).

Here is the list of the skills we will build and train at the TMW 2018 Tailings 2.0: Space observation, quantitative risk assessment bring value and comply with societal demands short course.

  • How to build a baseline risk assessment which will detail and allow updated evaluations of potential failure modes during the system (and not only the dam’s) life cycle.
  • Mastering a well understood glossary. As stated in the Mine Tailings Storage: Safety Is No Accident A Rapid Response Assessment you need to “Clarify responsibility for tailings dam performance.” which is a multi-parameter optimization problem. Indeed, oftentimes tailings system’s failure means different things to different stakeholders. e.g. engineer or regulators.
  • Defining the system. This is oftentimes neglected fundamental step.
  • Understanding the multidimensional consequences
  • Formulating system’s failure/success criteria.
  • How to include system’s and elements’ inter-dependencies.
  • How to build a risk register that quantitatively integrates the data with mitigation leading to calculate the system’s residual risks.

We look forward to seeing you in Keystone, CO, September 30th 2018!
