Narrow Vein and Reef Mining Conference 2011

Event Date 22 November 2011
Event End Date 23 November 2011
We are no longer accepting registration for this event


It is easier to mine and evaluate bulk large deposits than narrow veins or reefs largely due to economies of scale.
There are however many narrow vein/reef deposits that can potentially be mined economically through concentrating on quality rather than quantity.
