Australian Mine Ventilation Conference 2015

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2015

The Australian Mine Ventilation Conference was held in Sydney, New South Wales from 31 August - 2 September 2015. The third event in this series, it was jointly hosted by the AusIMM, the University of NSW Australia and the Mine Ventilation Society of Australia.

This conference proceedings is an invaluable tool for the local and global mine ventilation fraternity as an additional reference for mine ventilation designs. It contains three keynote papers and 40 peer-reviewed technical papers covering themes including case studies, coal seam gas, detection and control of spontaneous combustion, diesel emissions control and measurement, health hazard measurement, heat and refrigeration, mine ventilation and planning, prevention and fighting of mine fires, prevention of methane and coal dust explosions, and ventilation monitoring and control.
