8:00 - CONFERENCE - 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) Online and in Perth, Australia, 3–4 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.

10:00 - WORKSHOP - Find your best performing papers Website | More Information
Applying for a grant, award or promotion and need to identify your best performing papers? Let us show you how to do this using the Incites database, which uses data from Web of Science to analyse your performance in relation to other publications in your subject area.

8:00 - EVENT - Instrumentation and Slope Monitoring Workshop : Associated event to the Slope Stability in Mining 2021 Conference Website | More Information
This ACG workshop will focus on new developments relating to conventional terrestrial monitoring systems such as open pit radars, prisms, laser scanning, and photogrammetry, as well as the integration of the different types of these monitoring systems and their interpretation. Application examples of many companies providing these new technologies include land cover determination, feature extraction, persistent change detection and monitoring, terrain slope characterisation, soils modelling and saturated ground detection. Considerable advances have also been made in remote sensing by using a wide variety of different types of unmanned aerial/piloted vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones and also referred to as remotely piloted aircraft (RPA), in monitoring mine sites. This workshop will also explore the advances in the in-ground monitoring of deformation and pore pressure in open pit mining that may be able to provide advance notice of ground movement and changes in pore pressure that might affect slope stability.
