Ground Support

Brisbane Marriot Hotel — July 24-25

Our first meeting for 2018 will cover a broad range of issues involving ground support in surface and underground mining with a focus on design.

We have 21 excellent presentations organised and keynote presentations from internationally recognised practitioners Francois Malan, Marnie Pascoe and Ismet Canbulat. This meeting promises to be another “must attend” event.

The meeting will be followed by a one day workshop “Geomechanical Applications for Mobile Laser Scanning in Underground Mining”.

Registrations for both events are open. Book now to secure your place.

Last Meeting

Waste Dumps and Backfill

Melbourne — November 2017

Our second meeting for 2017 was held in November at the Donkey Wheel House, Melbourne.

Forty ground control practitioners heard 33 presenters give 21 presentations. Four excellent keynotes presentations were given by Tony Grice from AMC, John Simmons from Sherwood Geotechnical and Sam Spearing from WASM

As always, the quality of all presentations was outstanding.

The consensus amongst attendees was that the meeting went very well. Like all of our meetings, the professional development and networking opportunities that provided were invaluable. Providing these opportunities cost-effectively is a fundamental reason for the existence of the Group.

The Group could not have provided such a high-quality meeting at such a reasonable cost if not for the generous support of our 19 sponsors. Their details can be found on our Sponsors page.
