Call for Delegates: Tailings Management Framework Mine Financial Security Program Working Group

Initiative: 
Tailings Management Framework Mine Financial Security Program Working Group
Position: 
ENGO Members (3)
Application Deadline: 
24 Apr 2017

On March 13, 2015, the Government of Alberta released the Tailings Management Framework for the Mineable Athabasca Oil Sands to enhance the management of fluid tailings in this region. The Framework provides direction to manage fluid tailings volumes during and after mine operation in order to manage and decrease liability and environmental risk resulting from the accumulation of fluid tailings on the landscape. The Framework can be found online.

Implementation of the Framework is currently underway, and a key priority project in this implementation process is the revision of the Mine Financial Security Program to meet the intent of the Framework. As a result, Alberta Environment and Parks is establishing a Tailings Management Framework Mine Financial Security Program Working Group.

Alberta Environment and Parks would like to invite three representatives from the ENGO community to actively participate in the working group. Read More
