“Maximising value through geomechanics”

The Australian Centre for Geomechanics is delighted to host the First Asia Pacific Slope Stability in Mining Conference in Brisbane, Australia, 6–8 September 2016. This inaugural conference will provide a special forum for best practice and state-of-the-art technologies that are targeted to the unique challenges and environs of the Asia Pacific region with respect to pit slope investigations, design, implementation and performance monitoring.
