The Mining Dams Committee is the forum within CDA for the interests of owners, consultants, regulators and suppliers involved with the design, construction, operation and closure of mining dams.
The term “mining dams” is used to represent the wide variety of dams that are found at mine sites, such as tailings dams, contaminated water dams, freshwater supply dams, seepage collection pond dams and sludge storage dams.
The committee focuses on promoting awareness of the technical and risk management practices for dams used in the mining industry.
Specifically, it identifies technical issues that reflect the unique characteristics of mining dams, and lead in the production of technical guidance following the principles of and supporting the CDA Dam Safety Guidelines.
