engineers and metallurgists. Twenty six multi-disciplinary papers were presented
covering geology and exploration, geotechnical engineering, mining and new
technologies. Case studies included: operations and technology in Australia,
Canada, Ghana, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Sweden, Tanzania and the UK.
