5th Australasian Ground Control in Mining Conference; AusRock 2021

A truly global gathering of resource industry professionals

AusRock 2021 follows on from earlier conferences that have successfully covered the various aspects of geotechnical engineering servicing the mining industry and shared best practices.

The conference is a vehicle for information exchange between the coal and metalliferous sectors of the industry with a focus on new technologies and developments, industry needs and mine site problem solving, and practical case studies.
