Our consortium solution is to achieve near zero mine tailings waste flowsheet based on economic principle intended to provide additional income.  The concept includes existing technologies, current research and experience from the Circular Mine Consortium team adapted into a recycling process aimed at removing the need for costly tailings dams and the associated risks.  Tailings are reviewed as part of a resource and become an important by-product and asset to be processed and marketed.  A further opportunity exists in the carbon economy to market carbon credits given the carbonation capture technology to produce construction materials and revegetation.
