8:00 - WORKSHOP - Static Liquefaction Workshop : This two-day workshop aims to provide a demonstration of static liquefaction triggering as it relates to tailings Website | More Information
This two-day workshop aims to provide a demonstration of static liquefaction triggering as it related to tailings, and outline the various tools available to assess the potential for this behaviour.

This will be achieved through explanation on the interpretation of the cone penetration test (CPT), laboratory techniques to refine CPT interpretation and provide inputs to other analyses, and finally analytical and numerical methods to assess static liquefaction susceptibility.

Mining and tailings consultants, operators of tailings storage facilities, as well as regulators will find this workshop of interest.
Thursday 19
8:00 - SEMINAR - Tailings Management: Responding to Emerging Challenges Seminar : This two-day seminar will address the emerging challenges in the day-to-day management of tailings storage facilities Website | More Information
This two-day seminar will address the emerging challenges in the day-to-day management of tailings storage facilities and the obligation to comply with the relevant operating standards and closure requirements. It will explore the conditions and obstacles encountered in everyday mining, and innovative solutions utilised in different mining operations and environments; and will include case studies, specialist presentations and discussion sessions.

This seminar will be run immediately following the Static Liquefaction Workshop, and you can choose to attend both events together at a discounted rate.

Tuesday 24
8:00 - WORKSHOP - Introduction to the Application of Risk-Based Methods in Underground Mining Geomechanics Workshop : A forum for underground mine workers to discuss: the methods used to design for geotechnical risk Website | More Information
Within the mining community, geotechnical risk is often underappreciated, sometimes ignored and seldom properly quantified. In all areas of geomechanics, the uncertainty and variability that engineers need to deal with necessitate a rigorous process of quantification or, in the very least, robustly qualifying likelihoods and consequences. There appears also to be a large gap between the state-of-the-art and the state of general practice when it comes to the qualification and quantification of geotechnical risk. The aim of this ACG workshop is to provide a forum for underground mine workers to discuss: the methods used to design for geotechnical risk and those used to manage these risks; to identify shortcomings; and to close the gap between the state-of-the-art and the state-of-practice.

8:00 - EVENT - Second International Conference on Underground Mining Technology : The Australian Centre for Geomechanics is delighted to host the Second International Conference on Underground Mining Technology (UMT 2020) in Brisbane, Australia, 4–6 November 2020. Website | More Information
Due to the ongoing drive for safer and more productive and economical mines, there is a need for the practical application of existing technology and the continual development of new technology. In recent years, a vast amount of technology development has changed the landscape of mining geomechanics discipline. Photogrammetric methods and laser measurement technology allows geotechnical engineers to gather data not possible before, and the development in drone technology allows them to gather this data in areas previously not accessible.

Integrated underground communications systems allow for seamless real-time integration, and personnel tracking systems allow for better assessment and management of exposure to geotechnical hazards. Geotechnical engineers now have data at higher resolution with wider coverage not possible before. However, effective decisions can only be made if data is turned into information, and knowledge derived from it. This conference will provide a forum to present and discuss new technologies and explore practical ways of implementing and expanding these new technologies to maximise their value within the underground mining environment.
