There is a special dam safety organization for Boliden’s dam facilities that is tasked with ensuring that applicable laws, guidelines, and procedures are followed. Dam monitoring and inspections take place regularly and include such things as the collection and analysis of data. In addition, independent audits of dam safety are carried out with input from third parties. Our goal is to implement and abide by the new, global guidelines on dam safety.
Boliden is a member of the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), an international organization dedicated to a safe, fair and sustainable mining and metals industry. Through its membership, Boliden undertakes to comply with the Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management regarding dam safety.
