Mine Seismology Workshop 2017 – Kalgoorlie, Australia

Lectures, seismological consultations and training in Ticker3D: 7 – 8 September 2017

The annual IMS Mine Seismology Workshop will be held on the 7th and 8th of September 2017 at the WMC Conference Centre, Kalgoorlie. Note that this event is scheduled to take place after the Western Australia Ground Control Group meeting that will be held in Kalgoorlie on the 6th of September.

The management of seismic hazard is gaining an increased interest in the mining industry. We have dedicated the first half of day 1 to the assessment of seismic hazard and the establishment of re-entry protocols. We have invited other organisations that are doing research and development in this area to participate. Two time slots are reserved on the programme for these presentations.

During the second half of day 1, we will present various advanced methods for the analysis of data recorded by seismic systems.

You are welcome to discuss seismological problems with IMS specialists during the free consultancy hours on day 2. Software training in IMS Ticker3D will be provided in parallel.

Following the successful 27th annual IMS Seminar held in Sudbury in May 2017, the Institute of Mine Seismology will hold another Mini-Seminar on Microseismic Monitoring in Mines in Stellenbosch in October. This is an opportunity for regional and international users, practitioners and researchers to meet and discuss the latest seismological analysis techniques and technology.

The event dovetails with AfriRock 2017 (ISRM Symposium “Rock Mechanics for Africa”) to be held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC): the IMS Mini-Seminar takes place on 2 October, while the AfriRock 2017 technical sessions take place 3 – 5 October. Transport to and from the CTICC can be arranged (depending on demand).

The main topics will be:

  • passive and active seismic monitoring
  • long, intermediate and short term seismic hazard
  • integration of numerical modelling with seismic data
  • case studies
