Mining Geology 2014

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2014

This conference was jointly organised by the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG) and The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (The AusIMM). The program showcased a variety of papers on aspects of mining geology, including geology, geophysics and drilling, mineral deposit evaluation, mineralisation controls and structural geology, and mining geology in action. In addition keynote speakers brought perspectives from industry and academia to illuminate the important areas of geoscience where mine geologists will play roles in the future evolution of our industry.
