AusRock 2014: Third Australasian Ground Control in Mining Conference

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2014

AusRock 2014: Third Australasian Ground Control in Mining Conference was held in Sydney, NSW. It was jointly hosted by the International Society of Rock Mechanics and its affiliates in Australasia, the Australian Geomechanics Society, the New Zealand Geotechnical Society and the Eastern Australia Ground Control Group. The conference provided an update to mining industry geotechnical personnel on best practice in both Australasia and overseas. It acted as an information exchange vehicle between the coal and metalliferous sectors of the industry, with a focus on new technologies and developments, industry needs and mine site problem solving and practical case studies. Papers presented covered all mining sectors, focusing on new technologies and developments, industry needs and problem solving and practical case studies related to ground control in mining.
