In this Mining Coffee Chat from August 11, 2020, Dr. Remi Piet (Embellie Advisory) was joined by Sarah Gordon and Norman Gridley, both from Satarla, a leading mining engineer risk management consultancy based in London.
Norman provided his expertise on sustainability, risk management, and tailings management backed by 35 years of experience as an environmental engineer for multiple companies in the mining sector. For her part, Sarah, managing director at Satarla, drove a deeper discussion into the ICMM Tailings Governance Framework. The Coffee Chat also suggested best practices on tailing security and environmental engineering to both mitigate risks and develop adequate corporate governance strategies.
