Tenth International Mining Geology Conference 2017

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2017

This years’ Tenth International Mining Geology Conference was held in Hobart, Tasmania, from 20–22 September and sought to highlight the continuing evolution of Mining geologists who are now involved in many business-critical steps in the value chain, from resource evaluation and feasibility through mine production management, and geometallurgy to marketing.

The theme of the conference was 'setting new standards' and focused on opportunities and benefits of formal work process standards, and also on improving the quality/standard of current approaches to mining geology. The papers in these proceedings are a quality range of case studies in best practice, advances in grade and geology modelling, geometallurgy and geomechanics, and some forward looking keynote abstracts, as well as some excellent student/new professional abstracts.
