Risk Assessment and Decision Making for Mine Geowaste Facility Management

Location: live webcast
Duration: 3 sessions of 3 hours each
This webcast is scheduled to be held from 8:00am to 11:00am PDT/Vancouver, Canada time.

This course will review the risk assessment and decision making methods and tools applied to mine tailings, waste rock, and spent heap leach facilities.

The course will examine recent findings from the Mount Polley tailings facility failure, and outline the risk assessment methods that can be used to prevent future tailings disasters. Practical techniques for the management of mine geowaste facilities using risk assessment methods and decision making tools will be discussed.

Studying past and recent case histories will both illustrate and expand on the application of the many methods used for undertaking risk assessment and decision making, including FMEAs and Tolerability Curves, Fault Trees and Root Cause Analyses, as well as MAAs and Bayesian methods. The course will build on and advance the fundamentals that are available through EduMine’s online course titled Risk Assessment, Decision-Making, and Engineering Management for Mine GeoWaste Facilities.

Course Objectives and Outcomes

Course participants will be given a detailed overview regarding the theory and practice of risk assessment and decision making, resulting in safer mine geowaste facilities that are economically viable. Current practices and innovative emerging concepts will be explored as a result of recent tailings failures. The course is intended to be part of the necessary demand to achieve ZERO tailings and mine waste facility failures moving forward.

Upon completion, participants will be better equipped to manage mine geowaste facilities, in accordance with current best management practices, including comprehensive consideration of hazards, probabilities of failure, consequence quantification, and most importantly, implementation of mitigation measures to reduce cost and ensure safety.
