Tailings, Heap Leach & Waste Management

Stable, cost effective and legally compliant surface facilities: whether it's a tailings facility, leach pad or municipal/industrial waste facility, you do not need costly surprises from instability, fluid discharges, dust emissions or any other permit violations. And, these facilities must be designed for practical operation and cost effective closure.

Providing you with a clear set of options and their time-related risks is a cornerstone of our engineering services. You can compare these alternatives and make an informed decision on the best option for your needs and risk profile. Our experience helps you minimise risk and keep projects on track and within budget.

SRK is capable of supporting you with sound advice and guidance through your project life cycle including the evaluation of options in the feasibility process, construction, operations and ultimately closure.
