Conference Proceedings
Published in 2008

The Tenth Underground Operators' Conference Proceedings reviews the current issues facing the underground mining industry, such as the changes in the industry due to the mining ‘boom’; alliance contracting and the development of a very large uranium mine. The papers are predominately focused on underground mining, with topics covering case studies, planning, technology, business improvement, ground support and mining methods, some papers are also devoted to human resources and the environment, discussing the best practice in FIFO, as well as ventilation challenges in mining.
