Newmont’s Tanami mine is in the final stages of a closure process that commenced with a strategic closure assessment of a large series of landforms. This process included waste rock landforms, stockpiles, open cut pits (some backfilled), and tailing storage facilities (in-pit and paddock style). Given the scale and extent of the various project areas, an effective process was required to manage and track resource allocation specific to these areas, and to enable continuous improvement throughout the process. This paper describes the comprehensive and flexible process that was required to deliver the project objectives. Through a case study style presentation, the significant investments made by Newmont in mine closure at Tanami are considered and the principles and learnings gained from this project described and explored.
