Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management

IOC Sept-Îles Tailings Management

At Rio Tinto, responsibly managing waste from mining operations is essential, as is being transparent with our stakeholders about our tailings facilities and how we manage them. 

That’s why IOC Sept-Îles’ tailings storage facility adheres to Rio Tinto’s Safety Standards, which emphasize safe operations for all.

In addition to these standards, in 2020, Rio Tinto voluntarily chose to comply with the Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management (GISTM) to prioritise safety at every stage of a facility’s lifecycle.
