Rio, Oz Minerals and Boliden partner on tailings
Tuesday, December 6th, 2022
Diversified miner Rio Tinto, copper miner Oz Minerals and Swedish metals major Boliden will partner on an initiative to manage tailings.
Under the umbrella of the Think & Act Differently (TAD) incubator initiative the three companies will fund and support innovators who are working to reimagine mining and processing to eliminate, minimise, reuse or find value in mine tailings.
The three will also collaborate on other selected innovations to pursue improved productivity while delivering benefits such as lower emissions and reduced waste.
“We can accelerate technology much faster by working together and this is an example of how the industry can collaborate to support technology development,” Oz Minerals technology executive Michelle Ash said.
