How to solve complex tailings challenges


Due to lower head grades and complex ore bodies, more tailings are being generated by mining processes, adversely impacting the ecosystem and productivity. At Metso Outotec, our goal is to provide holistic tailings management solution by bringing a step change in the way we view, handle, and manage tailings. Join this webinar hosted by tailings filter experts, Geoff Foster and Guido Goerres to learn about how our filtration solutions are helping in solving complex tailings handling challenges.

After this webinar, you will:   

  • Be more cognizant of the challenges and potential issues that the mining industry is facing in tailings management
  • Get to know about the unique capabilities of the new Larox FFP3716 filter to solve your complex tailings handling challenges
  • Have a better understanding of dry filtered tailings as a more competitive and safer solution for tailings management

This webinar will be in English
