There are a variety of technical sessions conducted by industry experts, on topics including:
- Tailings and Mine Waste Management
- Mine Closure and Rehabilitation

Special Plenary Sessions with Enhancements in Advanced Geotechnique for Tailings Dam Design – with guest speakers: Bryan Watts, Peter Robertson, Dr. David Williams & Dirk van Zyl.
The Tailings & Mine Waste Conference Committee has announced the Tailings & Mine Waste 2021 Virtual Forest. The virtual delegates will get a chance to pick a tree that will then be planted in a designated area in Edmonton, Alberta. Forest Farmer will plane and care for the tree in the delegates name in order to restore the habitat. This is a way to give back to the community.
It is exciting to be getting slowly and safely back to in person events. We appreciate seeing the people that make up this community and showcasing how we can serve the betterment of all.
