Seventh International Mining Geology Conference 2009

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2009

The Seventh International Mining Geology Conference was a unique event targeted directly at mining geologists, and was designed to review the advances in knowledge since the first meeting 19 years ago. The proceedings contains papers covering geological modelling, resource evaluation, underground and open pit grade control, project case studies, geometallurgy and new technologies. Case studies include projects in Australia, Canada, Finland, Ghana, Greenland, Indonesia, South Africa, New Zealand and United Kingdom, and cover commodities such as bauxite, coal, diamonds, gold, silver, poly-metallics (Ni-Cu-Co-Zn) and mineral sands.
