ESG to Host Microseismic Workshop at the 7th International Conference on Deep & High Stress Mining

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 12:00am to Thursday, September 18, 2014 - 11:45pm

Technical experts from ESG will be delivering a one-day workshop titled "Getting the Most from a Seismic System" at the 7th International Conference on Deep and High Stress Mining in Sudbury, Ontario this September.  Delivered by Dr. Dave Collins and Dr. Yuzo Toya from ESG, the workshop aims to demonstrate how to get the most value out of your seismic data in terms of understanding how a rock mass is responding to mining operations.  

Practical Hands-on Experience

The workshop begins with a short introduction to seismic concepts, followed by practical examples of seismic analysis methods. Attendees with laptops will be provided with a short term license version of ESG software and an example dataset.  "It is one thing to install a microseismic system in a mine and rely on basic automatic functionality, but it is another thing to know how to use it to its full potential to get the most value of out of your data," says Dave Collins, Manager of Mining and Geotechnical Consulting Services at ESG.

A full description of the workshop can be viewed in the conference brochure.

7th International Conference on Deep and High Stress Mining

Underground mining continues to progress at deeper levels and industry is now extracting mineral reserves at depth that previously would have been considered ‘unmineable’. Deep mining is a very technical and challenging environment. The geotechnical and logistical issues, including reticulation and refrigeration of fresh air, are often intense and best practices and innovations need to be implemented.

Hosted in Sudbury, Canada for the first time, the conference follows the previous seminars held in Perth, 2012; Santiago, 2010; Perth, 2007; Quebec City, 2006; Johannesburg, 2004; and Perth, 2002.
