Mine closures & rehabilitation

Environmental rehabilitation

Environmental rehabilitation

Mining is a temporary activity that can have lasting impacts on the environment and the communities where it operates. That is why TacminMadini is committed to ensuring that mining projects are closed in a responsible and sustainable manner. We offer comprehensive mine closure services that cover every aspect of the process, from planning and costing to environmental rehabilitation. Our goal is to restore the land to a productive and beneficial state, while minimizing the environmental, social, and economic liabilities. We use cutting-edge technologies and equipment to achieve the best outcomes for our clients and stakeholders. Whether you need to improve your existing mine closure plan, or design a new one from scratch, we have the expertise and experience to help you.

Hazard identification and risk assessment

Hazard identification and risk assessment

Identify Environmental Hazards:

Our process begins with a thorough identification of potential environmental hazards. These may encompass soil erosion, slope failures, embankment restoration, water pollution, habitat destruction, and contamination of ecosystems. Our site surveys meticulously recognize elements or conditions posing risks to the environment, wildlife, or nearby communities.

 

Assess Environmental Risks:

Our risk assessment involves evaluating the likelihood and severity of harm caused by these identified hazards. We

consider factors such as the sensitivity of local ecosystems, the presence of endangered species, and the potential for long-term contamination.

 

Control and Derisk Potential Hazardous Components:

Our ultimate goal is to eliminate environmental risks altogether. However, when complete elimination is not feasible, we take practical steps to minimize risks. 

We follow a hierarchy of control measures:

Elimination: Safely removing hazardous components, like disposing of contaminated soil or preventing further erosion.

Engineering Controls: Modifying the landscape or structures to reduce risks, such as stabilizing slopes or redirecting water flow.

Administrative Controls: Ensuring compliance with environmental laws through regulations, monitoring, and land-use planning.

Remedial & Protective Measures (RPM):

Implementing measures like liners to prevent leaching from waste rock piles or creating buffer zones around water bodies.

 

Revegetation and Habitat Restoration:

Active efforts are made to restore native vegetation, prepare for wildlife reintroduction, and create sustainable habitats. This contributes to ecosystem stabilization, reducing risks over time.

Environmental monitoring control centre

The main objective of the environmental monitoring control centre is to track, control, and manage environmental aspects during rehabilitation. By leveraging real-time data from interconnected sensors, TacminMadini ensures climate monitoring, water quality optimization, geotechnical stability, vegetation health, erosion prevention, and sediment control.
