Narrow Vein Mining Conference 2008

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2008

Narrow vein mining operations form a relatively small but important part of the mining industry. The skills and expertise required to manage these natural resources are arguably highly specialised, and can include dealing with issues of potentially complex geology, a high to extreme nugget effect, high planned and additional dilution, the need for strong selectivity, high-stress conditions, low tonnes per vertical metre, and coarse gold and sometimes complex metallurgy.

These proceedings will interest those involved in narrow vein mining, including geologists, mining and geotechnical engineers and metallurgists, they contain 28 multi-disciplinary papers covering exploration and resource geology, mining geomechanics, mining methods and design, dilution control, new technologies, and metallurgical processing. Case studies include operations in Australia, Africa, Canada, Europe and Greenland.

The future of narrow vein mining depends upon skilled professionals and on developing practical and innovative methods for orebody definition, mining and mineral processing. All this must be undertaken within a framework of safe working practices, environmental sustainability and economic viability.
