Celebrating 100 years of the Mine Ventilation Profession
The Australian Mine Ventilation Conference 2017 is a sequel to the very successful mine ventilation conferences held in Sydney in 2011, Adelaide in 2013 and Sydney in 2015.
Ventilation controls form many of the core risk activities in mines. Significant developments in practice and research in recent years have helped ensure we maintain and improve levels of safety within our underground mining sector.
The organising committee aims to provide an opportunity to present these developments so that the industry can benefit from this collective knowledge. As per the previous events, we will again call on expertise from industry and academia, to bring about the fourth in a series of ventilation conferences.
The conference will bring operators, planning personnel, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, government regulators, consultants and research and technology personnel together to explore achievements and build a better industry. Consistent with the aims of the AusIMM, the conference enables members and industry to keep abreast of views on various aspects of mine ventilation and provides a forum to showcase technical and factual information within the minerals industry.
