KCB integrates environmental and engineering management of mining projects with the focus on mine waste management and environmental stewardship. We have worked on more than three hundred mining projects worldwide, including some of the largest mining projects developed. We have a long history in tailings storage facility design, with experience on hundreds of dams, some up to 300 m high. We have been trusted with some of the largest, most challenging tailings storage facilities, and some of our clients have been with us for over 30 years. Our integration with the environmental and social design drives our continued development as a leading-edge provider of these services to major mining clients worldwide.
