This event has been developed to cover the technical and practical aspects of ground support for underground metalliferous mines. The social license to operate mines in many countries around the world dictates safety records are maintained at a high standard. As a result, the mining industry has become increasingly intolerant to risk. Ground support remains the main means to mitigating rockfalls; one of the major risks in underground mines.
As such, the latest developments and applications of ground support in mining and underground construction are of prime interest to practitioners. The event is designed to assist mining personnel involved with the design and implementation of mine ground support.
Geotechnical engineers, mine managers, mining engineers, mine geologists, mining supervisors and operators, suppliers of mine support equipment, mining contractors and mines inspectors may benefit from attending the event. The short course will be run live in half-day sessions (Australian Western Standard Time) to accommodate online attendees from various time zones.
The hybrid format of this event allows for participation either in-person, or online from anywhere in the world.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event. Email the ACG for more details.
