2018 Environmental Management Workshop
16-18 May 2018
This workshop is predominately focused on environmental management within the mining industry, with delegates from mine sites, environmental consultants, government regulators and the service industry.
The Ground Control Group of WA (WAGCG) meets three times a year as an independent and impartial body enabling underground and open pit geotechnical engineers to meet, discuss and exchange ideas, techniques and experiences in a technical yet formal setting. The meetings also provide a forum for attendees to discuss ground conditions specific to their own sites and to seek the opinions and recommendations of others.

- 23 March 2018 – Ground support
- 13 July 2018 – Learnings from mistakes, challenges and mishaps
