“The mining industry must collectively address the challenges of tailings. The future requires not only the adoption of best practices, but also the best technology, ”said Kim Morrison, Global Tailings Manager at Newmont. On Day 2 of the Mexico Mining Forum 2021, panelists discussed the importance of implementing global standards and explained that good tailings management can also bring economic and operational benefits. In addition, the importance of having good communication with the communities to eliminate misconceptions about mining was also mentioned. "This industry has been off the radar for a long time and is missing a great opportunity because there are many stories showing the positive impacts of mining," said Mitchell Krebs, CEO of Coeur Mining.
