PROFESSIONAL PROFILE NATIONALITY/RESIDENCY

Dr Hongyu Li has over 20 years experience in geotechnical engineering

as a project manager, consultant, academic and researcher, with

expertise in tailing and water management.

A highly motivated and dedicated individual with exceptional analytical

skills, Hongyu recently delivered a number of innovative designs and

solutions for several tailings storage facilities.

Hongyu’s involvement in mine tailings started in 1989 when he worked

on his PhD research program on coal mine tailings. He now has been

involved in about 30 tailings and water dams in Australia and overseas.

His work on tailings storage facilities includes ‘Greenfield’ concepts,

feasibility studies, and long term planning, through detailed engineering

design, construction and operation to final closure. He applies a full

life cycle, integrated and risk-based approach to bauxite residue and

tailings management.

Over the coming years, Hongyu would like to build and lead a

highly skilful team in the technology group, to oversee the strategic

development and operations support for tailings and water

management.
