Participants Sought for Proposed GBC TSF Task Force

from GBA

Geotechnical Business Council Chair Richard D. "Rick" Heckel, P.E., D.GE (Ardent Geotechnical Consultants, LLC) and GBA Director-at-Large Kimberly F. Morrison, P.E., R.G. (Morrison Geotechnical Solutions, Inc.) are seeking members for a proposed GBA/GBC Task Force to provide guidance about serving as the engineer of record (EOR) for mine-tailings-storage facilities (TSFs), whose owners (and EORs) are subject to frequent change. Some of the key issues involved were spotlighted in August 2014, when the Mount Polley Mine tailings dam failed: Three GBA-Member Firms were involved in various capacities. According to Rick and Kim, the Task Force would: develop a GBA case history that documents various experiences and opinions; prepare a GBA Business Brief, to raise awareness of GBA-Member Firms involved in tailings management; and establish a venue for discussion of the issue, with the goal of developing an industry-guidance document. To volunteer or for more information, contact Kim Morrison ( more
