Upcoming Meetings

  • Tailings and Mine Waste '16
    October 2-5, 2016 | Keystone, Colorado

    The main purpose of the Tailings and Mine Waste conference is to provide a forum and meeting place for members of the mining community, engineers and scientists serving the mining industry, regulatory groups and other interest groups concerned with environmental issues related to tailings and mine waste management. Topics related to the engineering and management of tailings and mine waste will be covered, including case histories, design, operation, and disposal for mine waste management, geotechnical considerations, liners, covers and barriers for waste control, reclamation and remediation of mine impacted sites, oil sands issues, surface water and groundwater management and geochemistry, and policies, procedures and public safety.

  • Remediation Technologies Symposium 2016 (RemTech™ 2016)
    October 12-14, 2016 | Banff, Canada

    RemTech™ 2016 is a remediation technology transfer event for environmental professionals, encompassing the latest innovations in soil and groundwater remediation.

  • 2016 Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites Symposium
    October 26-27, 2016 | Denver, Colorado

    The Western Edition 2016 Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites Symposium is sponsored by the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) with possible co-sponsorship by U.S. EPA, The symposium will include presentations on the design and construction issues and challenges associated with hardrock mining sites.

  • The Mining Lifecycle: Tribal Engagement and Environmental Responsibility
    November 2-4, 2016 | Phoenix, Arizona

    The 2016 Mining Lifecycle Training features modules on exploration and mine planning; mine operations and effective environmental management; mine closure reclamation and addressing environmental risk; and a tour of the Freeport-McMoRan Miami Mine. Seating is limited to 100 participants, with priority going to tribal affiliates; however, registrations may open up to the private sector as the training date approaches.

 CLU-IN Mining Sites Webinar Series

 Workshops on Hardrock Mine Geochemistry and Hydrology

EPA's Region 10, ORD, and OSRTI hosted a three-part workshop series on hardrock mine geochemistry and hydrology in 2013. The goals included enhancing participants' understanding of the key issues regarding water chemistry predictions, identifying potential sources of contamination from mine sites, and describing practices to mitigate or reclaim facilities to protect natural resources. Presenters included experts from EPA Headquarters, Regions, and ORD; the U.S. Geological Survey; and the U.S. Forest Service. The workshops were open to all agencies, tribes, consultants, and the general public, and are now archived and available for streaming. Supplementary materials and resources provided by the instructors are also available for download below.
