Tailings dams conference in July 2018

Tailings 2018 Conference, Chile, July 2018

Maral Bayaraa from the Satellite Applications Catapult attended the Tailings 2018 conference in Santiago, Chile, where she introduced the project to the wider community.

According to Maral,

“The conference was fantastic – our project really felt at the frontiers of the tailings dams’ community. The conference was opened by a fantastic keynote speaker, who nicely set the scene for our presentation. His keynote culminated in emphasising the new era of technology, including satellite technologies and latest machine learning tools to ultimately create a sustainable mining lifecycle with safe tailings management. So, our project is really helping to carve the kind of future the industry believes it should follow.”
