ORE2_Tailings integrated platform for Tailings Dams risk analysis and portfolio prioritization is unique, proven and offers great advantages for its users with great economy of means.
Following past experience ORE2_Tailings is based on an integrated approach including:
Riskope has deployed symptom driven approaches in many risk assessment areas (landmines and unexploded ordnance, dikes, highways, railroads, etc.). In addition third parties testing has proven its validity. Furthermore there are academic papers showing it reliability and efficiency, while considering the inevitable uncertainties.
We carry out the benchmarking by using third party accident databases, as well as a UBC thesis in addition to our estimates of the world-wide dams’ portfolio performance of 2013, a first in the world, which proves correct year after year to this day.
One part of the benchmarking also looks at recent catastrophic failures (Samarco and Mount Polley), for which we evaluated the probability of failure based on publicly available data known before the accidents. We have recently performed the same kind of analysis for the Brumadinho Corrego dam failure and will publish the results in due time.
The seamless link to Space Observation is a weapon of choice we have developed in cooperation with MDA. We have already published on this subject and even taught courses. The joint capabilities are growing day after day.
Here are deformation measurement of the failed dam shown above, showing serious distress months before failure. The SAR/InSAR Space observation can pick-up millimetric deformations and covers areas instead of monitoring points. There are other advantages we will discuss in due time.
ORE2_Tailings integrated platform for Tailings Dams risk analysis and portfolio prioritization has the capability to link with sophisticated slope stability analyses software.
We have already successfully deployed ORE2_Tailings integrated platform for Tailings Dams risk analysis and portfolio prioritization on dams portfolios in Canada, Peru, Brazil. It allows for transparent risk communication and rational decision making, operational, tactical and strategic planning of dams’ risks mitigations.
The last two weeks blogposts discussed various directions converging toward the need for rational prioritization:
Last week we also mentioned the ORE2_Tailings application presentation which can be freely downloaded.
Something has to change if miners want to:
That change requires new tools. ORE2_Tailings is precisely what fills a gap that has the potential to ruin forever the image of the industry. The damage has already scared insurers, it is scaring investors and that does not do any good to anyone.
ORE2_Tailings integrated platform for Tailings Dams risk analysis and portfolio prioritization can be deployed on dams portfolios word-wide, scattered over various countries. There are no limits to the control and comfort that ORE2_Tailings will deliver to its users.
