The deadline for submission of abstracts to Geosynthetics Mining Solutions 2014 has been extended to March 17. Organized by Infomine, and in partnership with SLR Consulting, the event will be held 8 – 11 September 2014 in Vancouver, Canada. It will be the first conference and exhibition specifically devoted to geosynthetics in mining applications.
Geosynthetics Mining Solutions (www.geosyntheticssolutions.com) is for all those involved in the use of geosynthetics at mines. From the research scientist to the underground miner placing backfill; from the specialist consultants to the contractor installing wick drains to speed up drainage from a tailings pile; from the environmentalist seeking a long-term cover to the geotechnical engineer seeking to limit seepage and drainage; from the manufacturer of a new type of geosynthetic to the superintendant preparing a new heap leach pad.
