Tailings and Mine Waste is a conference series on mill tailings management that originally started at Colorado State University in 1978 and subsequently progressed as the annual Tailings and Mine Waste Conferences 1994 through 2004. The conference resumed in 2008. The primary purpose of the conference is to provide a forum and meeting place for members of the mining community, engineers and scientists serving the mining industry, regulatory groups and other interest groups concerned with environmental issues related to tailings and mine waste management.
Tailings and Mine Waste ’18 will be hosted by Colorado State University.
C3 Alliance is proud to once again manage the Tailings and Mine Waste conference taking place in Vancouver, BC in November 2019. The 2019 conference will be chaired by the University of British Columbia’s Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining.
