Life-of-Mine Conference 2014

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2014

Building on the inaugural Life-of-Mine 2012 Conference, Life-of-Mine 2014 included presentations on the following topics: planning for closure; landform design; rehabilitation challenges; life after mining; mining in a changing world; mining and the community; new approaches and innovation; managing water and waste and managing risk.  Delegates from the varied (and not always themselves sufficiently integrated) disciplines of geology, planning, mining and mineral processing attended the event, along with those from an environmental, social and broader sustainability-focused background. Delegates were able to maximise opportunities for cross-disciplinary learning, reaping the benefits and valuing the outcomes from such a conference.
