Guidelines for the design and management of tailings storage facilities

New extractive industries regulations commence on 26 January 2020. This page is being reviewed and may require updates.

We have developed these guidelines to ensure that the management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF) and associated tailings and slimes from mining and extractive industries in Victoria is undertaken in a manner that is safe and protects the environment.

It also aims to promote the adoption of best industry standards and practice, and continual improvement in tailings management.
