Eldorado Gold Includes Safe and Sustainable Practices in Mining

A distinguishing feature in our global  portfolio is the application of dry stack tailings technology for processing mine waste.

The benefits of dry stack tailings management include:
- Significantly reduces tailings environmental footprint;
- Higher solids content improves facility's safety and stability; facilitates water recycling
- Allows for continuous reclamation

In Greece, the Kokkinolakkas Tailings Management Facility (TMF) is a state-of-the-art facility that is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Kokkinolakkas uses industry-leading methods and materials to provide safe, stable and environmentally responsible storage of mine waste from the Olympias and Stratoni mines. Where possible, mine waste is first used for construction and backfill purposes, with excess stored as dry stack tailings within the Kokkinolakkas TMF.

Check out this video, and our Sustainability Report, to learn more about dry stack tailing and Kokkinolakkas.
