Mine Planning and Equipment Selection (MPES) 2010

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2010

The 19th International Symposium on Mine Planning and Equipment Selection (MPES 2010) has been recognised as one of the leading forums for promoting international technology transfer, with the main focus on all aspects of mine planning, as well as mining equipment. Some of the topics covered in the proceedings include: advances in surface and underground mine planning design and computer application; drilling, blasting and excavation engineering; environmental issues; automation; equipment selection, utilisation and maintenance; feasibility case studies; health and safety; mine planning and block modelling; mining methods and planning; mining system monitoring and simulation; rock mechanics, geotechnical applications and mine environment and sustainable development.
