Keynote speaker

Andy Brown is a specialist Rock Engineer with over 30 years of experience in the mining industry and is currently Vice President at Sibanye-Stillwater’s South African PGM operations.

He has held several senior technical roles in the geotechnical and Mineral Resource disciplines, principally in the hard rock mining environment of South Africa.

Andy is a fellow of the South African National Institute of Rock Engineers, a member of the International Society for Rock Mechanics and a member of the South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. 

Keynote presentation: "Technology, in the field of South African mining related seismicity, innovate, adopt and thrive, or ignore and be left behind" 


Technical Presentations

Learn from mine operators, academia, and other specialists in the field - as well as ESG’s microseismic specialists.

Themes to be covered include:

  • Seismic analysis for the characterization of rock mass behaviour
  • Hazard assessment using seismic and other geotechnical data
  • Advances in integration of geotechnical data
  • Seismic insights for ground support assessment and monitoring 

Submit an abstract

 Hands-on workshop

With live workstations on site, attendees will learn how to optimize the setup of the seismic system, diagnose, troubleshoot, resolve issues, and use advanced software processing tools.
