Seismic Risk Management Process:About

About the Website

With the support of Newcrest Mining Limited (Newcrest), the Australian Centre for Geomechanics (ACG) undertook a survey to obtain a cross-section of the seismic risk management practices used in underground hard rock mines around the world. The survey included contributions from 16 mine sites around the world (Participants). The results of this survey were compiled and are made available through this website.

This website provides an overview of what is being done - it is by no means an indication of what should be done.

As our methods and our understanding of mining-induced seismicity improve, so too will our risk management practices. The content of this website will be updated in the future. This is just the start!

Please feel free to send us an email if you wish to contribute content, share ideas, or discuss any errors.
