The committee, chaired by the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry's permanent
secretary Chote Trachoo, will choose between the two options on ore tailings management,
according to Pollution Control Department chief Supat Wangwongwattana. The first option is to transport the ore tailings from the old mining site to a privately-run hazardous waste management site in the neighbouring Ratchaburi province. The second option is to create a standard ore tailings storage site in the same place, he said.
