BHP Group Sets Up Tailings Taskforce To Boost Safety

Global miner BHP Group on Friday said it has set up a tailings taskforce to further improve the focus on internal dam management and boost safety, months after a second deadly dam disaster in Brazil.

Earlier in 2019, the International Council on Mining and Metals, an industry trade group whose members include Glencore, BHP and 25 others, said a committee will review and set standards for tailings dam design and maintenance by the end of the year.
