New Leaders' 2008

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2008

The theme for this year’s conference, ‘A mining planet: Australia’s role in the international minerals industry’, provides an opportunity for recent graduates and future graduates to understand much more about the minerals industry.

The proceedings contains some papers which discuss the socio-economic and environmental impacts of mining, and the impacts of mining to surrounding communities. Papers include not only negative impacts but also many positive aspects, and this is perhaps an indication of how the industry has changed its approach as it looks towards the future.

Of immediate concern to most new graduates is how to get the best employment opportunity upon graduating. Addressing this issue are papers which provide practical advice and hints on good leadership qualities. Technical paper contributions include innovations in dust monitoring, ventilation design, value adding, small-scale mining and more.
