Seventh International Conference & Exhibition on Mass Mining (MassMin 2016)

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2016

The MassMin conference series is the premier event for sharing mass mining research and developments, concepts, technologies and experiences since the first official event was held in Denver, Colorado in 1982. This, the seventh event in the MassMin series, was held in Sydney, Australia, and these conference proceedings are a record of the technical content of the conference.

The papers included in this volume include research, feasibility investigation, mining method selection, mine planning, operational, business improvement and case study perspectives within the themes of rock mass characterisation, caving mechanics, mine development, cave establishment, cave management, large open stoping, materials handling, mine support systems, project management and safety and environmental issues.
