G. Ward Wilson and Jean-Marc Charbonneau
CIM Distinguished Lecturer G. Ward Wilson spoke to the Quebec Branch on January 29 about paste rock systems for mine waste management. His presentation focused on the concept, theory, and application of paste rock systems for long-term mine waste management. Participants learned that waste rock and tailings could be combined to create materials with excellent physical and hydraulic properties for long-term mine closure.
The event was sponsored by the Quebec Mining Association, Agnico-Eagle Mines, Carrières Polycor, Corem, Gestion SODÉMEX inc., Mines Virginia, and Instrumentation GDD.
