TSF Management and Guidance
Optimised tailings storage facility management in real time.
Streamline tailings dam operations and compliance with immersive software.
Our tailings storage facility software enables real-time monitoring of TSF behaviour and metrics to facilitate continuous operations and manage risk indicators. Removing opportunity for personal biases, mine data is overlaid with 3D visualisation in a cloud-hosted platform to empower rapid decision making on multiple levels.
Through proactive trigger monitoring and notification, GDMS technology places operators in control of any breach, issue or change impacting the TSF, allowing for rapid implementation of preventative solutions.
Integration in Mining
Mining Operations are by nature large-scale, involving multiple components, systems, operations, and stakeholders. Management of TSF facilities can often, likewise, be multifaceted, involving multiple expensive telemetry systems and requiring complex oversight and reporting.
GDMS technology supports an integrated approach to mine planning, offering a dynamic cloud-based environment on which a tailings management system can be implemented. We eliminate the need for multiple telemetry and data management systems, streamlining mine operations within a single, centralised platform.

The GDMS platform hosts multiple data sets, within a customisable data management system. Multi-level users interact in a single space, streamlining process.
Our system reports on present and expected changes in TSF status. We respond to real-time indicators and events to ensure up-to date reporting on TSF levels and limitations.
The hardware is satellite linked and the data stored on secured servers that are backed up daily. Those servers are stored in Australia’s foremost protected data facility.
EMPOWERING THE OPERATOR
Our immersive software enables mine operators to explore the best way to develop, mine, rehabilitate and close an asset.
The GDMS predictive platform allows visual analysis of field characterisation with water data and ground water flow dynamics to optimise capital expenditure.
GDMS enhances optioneering capabilities for civil design and planning of monitoring systems for life of mine modelling.
To ensure current reporting on TSF levels and limitations, we respond to real-time indicators and events.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A tailings incident could have catastrophic effects on nearby communities and the environment. Since most tailing storage failures occur due to insufficient management, tailing management plans are a crucial requirement for good storage practises.
The GDMS platform provides live tailings management reporting and analysis capability to improve decision making.
The GDMS software supports an organisational culture of safety and responsibility. Designed by tailings engineers, the platform streamlines accessibility and documentation of data sought by an insurance underwriter in a single interface, with outputs addressing both current and future projections. This data is readily available reducing dependence on independent technical resources or the engineer of record / EOR.
The most common form of tailings management is storage in a tailings dam. Tailings dams are used to store water and waste that come as by products from the mining process.
If tailings are not properly managed, there may be risks to infrastructure, the environment, human health and safety, as well as the mining companies themselves. To reduce and mitigate these risks, effective tailings management is crucial.
For decades, tailings dams have been monitored via manual monitoring systems. This typically involves selected spots along the barrage, where boreholes are drilled and periodically visited. GDMS technology supports an integrated approach to mine planning, offering a dynamic cloud-based environment on which a tailings management system can be implemented.
