Enhancing Safety in Tailing Dam Management

The Importance of Continuous Monitoring

In the wake of a recent catastrophic failure of a Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) in Turkey, the global mining industry has been shaken by the urgent need for improved safety measures.

The incident serves as a stark reminder of the potential consequences of inadequate monitoring systems for TSFs. To address this critical issue, TANDM is leading the charge with an innovative approach to TSF monitoring.

At TANDM, we recognise the gravity of the situation and are dedicated to raising safety standards in tailings dam management. Our mission is clear: to prevent disasters before they occur through continuous, proactive monitoring.Central to our approach is the development of a cutting-edge monitoring system specifically tailored for TSFs. 

Unlike traditional monitoring methods that may only offer periodic assessments, our system prioritises real-time data access through cloud-based platforms. This means that potential risks can be identified and addressed swiftly, minimising the likelihood of catastrophic events.

A key component of our recent customised monitoring solution is the utilisation of Micro-Epsilon Draw wire sensors in conjunction with Move Solutions nodes. These sensors boast unparalleled precision, capable of detecting even the slightest changes in TSF infrastructure. 

By monitoring parameters such as crack growth along TSF walls with pinpoint accuracy, our solution enables early detection of potential instabilities, allowing for timely intervention and mitigation efforts.Moreover, our monitoring solution is designed to be versatile and adaptable, seamlessly integrating with existing TSF monitoring technologies. 

From tilt meters and piezometers to moisture sensors and pressure cells, our system complements traditional monitoring methods to provide a comprehensive approach to TSF safety.
