Deep Mining 2014

16–18 September 2014
Greater Sudbury, Canada

Underground mining continues to progress at deeper levels and industry is now extracting mineral reserves at depth that previously would have been considered “un-minable”. Deep mining is a very technical and challenging environment. The geotechnical and logistical issues, including reticulation and refrigeration of fresh air, are often intense and best practices and innovations need to be implemented.

The Australian Centre for Geomechanics, The University of Western Australia looks forward to hosting the Seventh International Conference on Deep and High Stress Mining in Sudbury for the first time. This follows the previous International Deep and High Stress Mining Seminars held in Santiago, 2010; Perth, 2007; Quebec City, 2006; Johannesburg, 2004; and Perth, 2002.  The series objective is to promote documentation of the latest technologies and practices of mining in deep and high stress mining environment.

Conference themes:

  •     Geomechanics risks
  •     Energy issues in deep mining
  •     Occupational health and safety in deep mines
  •     Financial risks
  •     Case studies
  •     Numerical modeling
  •     Rock behavior under high stress
  •     Rockburst and seismicity monitoring
  •     Ground support
  •     Risk assessment and management
  •     Ventilation
  •     Blasting
