Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management

Lundin Mining is committed to the implementation of the Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management (GISTM), which is the first global standard on tailings management.  The GISTM has an ultimate goal of zero harm to people and the environment.  The GISTM aims to prevent catastrophic failure of tailings facilities by providing operators with specified measures and approaches for safe tailings facility management, taking into account multiple stakeholder perspectives.

Lundin Mining plans for facilities that are classified as having ‘Extreme’ or ‘Very high’ potential consequences of failure, as defined by the Standard, to be in conformance with the GISTM within three years of August 5, 2020, and all other facilities within five years.
