Mine Planning Colloquium Announcement and Call for Papers 20112018.pdf
Mine Planning reg form 20112018.pdf
Previous SAIMM Mine Planning forums have clearly highlighted deficiencies in mine planning skills. The 2012, 2014, and 2017 colloquia all illustrated developing skill-sets with a variety of mine planning tools in a context of multiple mining methods. Newer tools and newer skills for the future of mining will feature in 2019.
Using a backdrop of a generic description of the multidisciplinary mine planning process, the forum provides a platform for the mine planning fraternity to share mining business-relevant experiences amongst peers. While different mining environments have their specific information requirements, all require the integration of inputs from different technical experts, each with their own toolsets.
The forum’s presentations will highlight contributions from a series of technical experts on current best practice, and will be augmented by displays of state-of-the-art mine planning tools in order to create a learning experience for increased planning competencies.
2 ECSA CPD points will be allocated to all attending delegates
Acceptance of papers for publication in the SAIMM Journal will be subject to peer review by the Conference Committee and SAIMM Publications Committee post-conference.
