Cave mining has become one of the most research intensive areas of mining engineering in recent times. Mining companies need to be kept informed of the latest technological developments from caving research, and researchers require a regular platform to present their results and interact with industry practitioners.
Ground Support Systems Optimisation Research Project (GSSO)
GSSO commenced its activities in late 2013. It has a budget of more than AUD 1.7 M, with a 3.5 year duration. Currently, GSSO has the support of six major sponsors: Glencore Xstrata Zinc, Independence Group, Codelco NML, MMG Limited, MRIWA and the ACG, as well as five minor sponsors: Atlas Copco Rock Drilling, DYWIDAG-Systems International, Jenmar Australia Pty Ltd, Fero Strata Systems Pty Ltd, Golder Associates Ltd and Geobrugg Australia Pty Ltd. The sponsors not only offer significant financial contributions, but also a large pool of expertise that provides extremely valuable input into the research projects and development of the Guide. The project will culminate with the publication of a new ground support design Guide in mid-2017.
