Life-of-Mine 2016

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2016

AusIMM's third event in this highly topical series attracted a broad and diverse range of professional disciplines, with contributions from industry, consulting, government and non-government organisations, providers of financial and legal services, civil society, academe and other research organisations. Participants and experts came together to share experiences, practices and case studies related to planning and sustainability issues embedded in the life and after-life of a mine. The conference, held in Brisbane, Australia in September 2016, was built around the following themes: strategies and planning for improving environmental performance; innovation for delivering better sustainability outcomes; incorporating societal and community factors into design and operation; and influences of global trends on the future of the industry.

Note: the proceedings contains extended abstracts only.
