Underground mining continues to progress at ever deeper levels and industry is now extracting mineral reserves at depth that previously would have been considered unmineable. Deep mining is a very technical and challenging environment.

A high level of understanding and technically sound approaches are essential to deal with the significant geotechnical (from squeezing ground to rockbursts) and logistical (transportation) issues of deep and high stress mining, and best practice and innovation need to be implemented.

Keep an eye on this page for more news on the dates and location of the next in this series of events.
