Questions on ALARP studies at Tailings 2022

13-07-2022

 Readers and conference delegates asked the following Questions on ALARP studies at Tailings 2022 and when they read a case study on ALARP optimization. National regulation compliance Are the results of an ALARP analysis consistent with national regulations and design requirements?  When we perform an ALARP analysis we consider local regulations. These will drive some a priori mitigative selections by the engineer of record. These bear on the nature and aim of mitigation stages  for the ALARP analysis. For instance,…

A Case Study on ALARP Optimization

6-07-2022

A Case Study on ALARP Optimization is the title our paper at Tailings 2022. The combination of probability of failure and consequences generates the potential risks of dams and other structures. Designers and owners should design, mitigate and monitor throughout the life and toward closure of dams. The GISTM indicates an ALARP objective for mitigation. In the paper we use an anonymized case to show how a dam’s probability of failure and risks evolve with its raising. In a second…

Zero to 300 in thirty

8-06-2022

Zero to 300 in thirty is not the performance of a new sensational sport car. And we are talking about thirty years, not seconds! Actually, zero to 300 in thirty years is the cumulative experience Riskope and its founders have dealing with tailings dams risk assessments all over the world.  You should not understand it as an “average” evaluation either, as the evolution has been trending towards exponential. Let’s discover together what we are talking about. Zero to 300 in…

TCFD and TNFD for mining: concepts, examples and caveats, is the paper we presented at #CIMBC22 Mineral Economics and Finance. Photograph provided by: Adolfo Tribst Corrêa We asked the audience if they were familiar with the: Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosure (Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures | TCFD) (fsb-tcfd.org) and Task Force in Nature-related Financial Disclosure (TNFD – Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures). Only a couple hands rose. Significant points of our discussion on TCFD and TNFD for…
