Barrick Gold, Chile Sketch Smart Water Strategies

26 January 2018
Research Note

On 17 January 2018, Chile’s environmental authority SMA sanctioned Barrick Gold with the permanent closure of its Pascua Lama mine. The decision is based on four key infractions that stem from non-contact water management in January 2013 when its main discharge tunnel collapsed.

Barrick has incorporated digital solutions into its water management strategy to prioritize site-specific stewardship and greater transparency. Chile plans to expand effluent monitoring with the Technological Program for Monitoring of Mine Tailings, which has US$8.3 million of financing from state agencies.
