On July 26th, the Mexican Geological Service (Servicio Geológico Mexicano, SGM) announced its program to identify and map mine tailing dams. In its blog, the SGM posted an email address where the public can send “comments, images, recommendations or complaints” related to tailing dams in order to generate “preventive actions and environmental care” in the communities where the dams are located. The original post and email address may be found by clicking here.
