8. Design Methods in Underground Mining 2015 (Australia) – November 17 – 19, 2015

The Australian Centre for Geomechanics will host the inaugural International Seminar on Design Methods in Underground Mining in Perth from 17-19 November 2015. This seminar will focus on both the numerical and empirical methods used for the design of underground metalliferous mines.

A variety of underground mining methods and designs are used to extract various orebodies from the large and massive, to the narrow tabular, flat or steeply-dipping, in competent or weak rock masses. Some design techniques, in particular the empirical approaches, which are very useful during feasibility studies, are often specific to the mining method – whether it is a caving, an open stope mining or cut-and-fill method. Achieving a robust design at this stage is critical to ensure that the mine’s initial extraction progresses without major problems.
