Underground mining continues to progress at 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 challenges of deep and high stress mining, and best practice and innovation need to be
This conference provides a forum for deep mining professionals to share research, ideas and experiences in order to help improve safety and productivity in the industry.
