Two areas that do seem to receive much discussion but are constant concerns brought forward in community meetings are 1) short and long term health, safety and environmental risks of tailings management facilities and 2) metal contamination risks to ground and surface water. These are the 2 items that outlast the mines and mining companies but not the communities that must deal with them. More research is required on how to reduce the size and impacts of tailings and the risks of metal contamination in ground and surface water. Defining innovative pathways to addressing these two issues would be a huge boost to companies attempting to obtain their social license.
