The Australian Centre for Geomechanics was delighted to welcome almost 100 delegates to Perth for the inaugural International Seminar on Design Methods in Underground Mining, held from 17–19 November 2015. The seminar focussed on both the numerical and empirical methods used for the design of underground metalliferous mines.
The seminar featured 36 high quality presentations on a range of topics. Over the course of the three-day technical programme, sessions were held on numerical modelling, designing for seismicity, optimisation of design, pillar design, design in narrow vein mining, input data for design, ground support, planning, design, production and financial input and geotechnical design, dilution control and orepass design.
