Fifth International Mining Geology Conference

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2003

The theme of this conference was ‘Mining Geology – Adding Value’, which reflects the critical importance of geology. Geologists input into all aspects of mining projects, from exploration to remediation. Most importantly they have a prime role in actually using geology to optimise production. As a result, geologists sit at the forefront of innovation and development. The Fifth International Mining Geology Conference provided a forum to discuss and develop the skills needed for using geology effectively. These proceedings contain papers on the latest developments and innovations that directly impact on the mine geologist’s work and provide insights to challenge the way we all do business.

Topics covered include:

  • Keynote Addresses
  • Role of the Geologist and Geology
  • Geostatistics
  • Grade Control and Reconciliation
  • Dealing with the Nugget Effect
  • Resource Estimation
  • Sampling
