Conferences | Courses | Workshops
The Australian Centre for Geomechanics presents numerous events each year for the worldwide mining industry. Our conferences, seminars, short courses and workshops are available to a wide spectrum of the industry workforce and are aimed at developing personnel highly skilled in the understanding and application of geomechanics principles. Through the continuing education and training programs of the Centre, particular emphasis is placed on technology transfer, as well as on bridging the gaps between the disciplines of geotechnical engineering, mining engineering and structural geology.

During 2018, a team of professionals from various mines, contractors and consultants met together in April to form the first inaugural meeting of the European Ground Control Group (EGCG).
The concept of this group follows that successful model of the Eastern Australian Ground Control Group (EAGCG); hold seminars and webinars, to work in collaboration with academic and research bodies, and generally to act as a platform for the transfer of knowledge via informed peer to peer debate and consultation.
If you are interested in collaborating with this group, potentially attending the seminars in the future and helping push forward innovative techniques in ground control, we invite you to click on the LinkedIn page and make a request to be part of this group.
The Goldfields Environmental Management Group (GEMG) is a technical and professional body of people working to achieve environmental excellence. Most of our members are located in the city of Kalgoorlie-Boulder situated in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.

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.
Please contact WAGCG secretary Brendan Crompton for details.
