Rubén Vargas of Knight Piésold Peru Delivers Tailings Management Keynote at British Embassy in Lima Event

June 13, 2024, Lima, PeruRubén Vargas, Engineering Manager of Knight Piésold Peru, gave a keynote presentation addressing tailings management challenges at the "British Expertise for Tailings and Water Dam Design and Management," a renowned event organized by the British Embassy in Lima. Vargas was among the distinguished speakers invited to the event, which was held on May 30, 2024, at the Sol de Oro Hotel in Lima, Peru, addressing challenges and advancements in tailings and water management.

The full-day event began with an initial round of presentations from various international companies, giving attendees an insight on the latest trends and applied innovations in different parts of the world. Knight Piésold, as one of the leading engineering consulting firms, was represented by Vargas, whose knowledge and experience in tailings management were key highlights of the day.

In his presentation titled, "Challenges in the Design and Management of Tailings Storage Facilities," Vargas highlighted the importance of safety, sustainability, and operational efficiency in designing and managing tailings storage facilities. His presentation covered crucial topics, such as the implementation of advanced technologies for tailings monitoring and control, the adaptation of increasingly stringent environmental regulations, and the comprehensive lifecycle management of these facilities.

"Tailings management should not only focus on risk mitigation but also on creating long-term value for communities and the environment," said Vargas. His presentation underscored the need for a holistic approach in the design and management of these facilities and proposed practical solutions based on his extensive experience in the field.

The event continued with a networking break, offering attendees the opportunity to exchange ideas and establish valuable contacts. Subsequently, a second round of presentations delved into other technical and strategic aspects related to tailings and water dam management.

The event concluded with a networking lunch, which allowed attendees the chance to more informally discuss the topics covered during the presentations and explore potential future collaborations.

“We thank the British Embassy in Lima for organizing this significant gathering of industry professionals and for providing us with the opportunity to share our experience and knowledge with the international mining community,” said Vargas. “Our participation in this event not only reaffirms Knight Piésold's commitment to technical excellence and innovation in tailings engineering but also strengthens our position as industry leaders.”
