    Anglo American’s Mine Closure Toolbox (version 3): A Journey of Integration

    20 November 2020 9:00am10:00am
    Integration across the many disciplines that have a role to play in mine closure, particularly Life of Mine planners, is critical to realise value through leading practice closure planning and execution.
  • Aligning technical disciplines into a strategic mine plan

    Aligning technical disciplines into a strategic mine plan

    13 November 2020 9:00am10:00am
    Strategic mine planning is essential to maximise the value of the mineral resource and consider the long-term sustainability of the environment and community where we operate. This presentation will focus on the working relationships and integration between technical disciplines, to manage a broad range of mining related risks. Through examples of strategic mine planning, the presenters will highlight the coordination and deliberate connection between multiple technical themes and disciplines, focusing on the core technical activities and inputs, which align to essential business process and, incorporate external sustainability drivers.

    50 Years of the JKMRC

    23 October 2020 9:00am10:00am
    Neville Plint will interview current and former staff members to revisit JKMRC’s history, to look at where we are now, and look forward to how the centre might look in another 50 years.
  • Converting Hydrogen to Humans: An astrophysicist's guide to the world's energy & resources crisis

    9 October 2020 9:00am10:00am
    It took the Universe over 10 billion years to create the resources that we, the Earth and the Sun are made of. How did it do that? Are they enough to sustain 10 billion people? And for how long? And at what cost? This seminar takes a hard look at these questions from a wide range of perspectives; starting at the beginning of the Universe, zooming in through global, urban and island ecosystems, and ending up right here and now in Queensland.
  • Flooding of abandoned tailings dumps – how to assess the risks?

    20 October 2020 9:00am10:00am
    Abandoned and inactive tailings storage facilities (TSFs) can pose environmental and health risks through failure or gradual release of contaminants into the atmosphere and/or water courses. This presentation will outline risk-based prioritisation options, describe the context in Chile, and then describe a study into using simplified flood models to prioritise TSFs in terms of their exposure to extreme floods.

    Rise of the NW Himalaya

    2 October 2020 9:00am10:00am
    The Himalaya-Tibetan Plateau is the type example of continent-continent collision systems. Suturing of Indian and Eurasian continents and the subsequent rise of Himalaya-Tibetan Plateau have exerted an impact on climate, ocean circulation, biological processes, and resource accumulation. This talk will bring the audience to the Ladakh region in NW India where the suture zone and southern Eurasian Plate are exhumed to the surface.

    Prediction and mitigation of environmental issues at gold mines in southern New Zealand: Successes and lessons

    25 September 2020 9:00am10:00am
    Accurate prediction of environmental issues from pre-emptive rock studies is the aim. Successes are heart-warming, but the lessons (best not to call them failures) can be most instructive, and this webinar will cover both. Southern NZ has 150 year history of gold mining, both placer and hard-rock. The biggest issue for placer mining has always been downstream suspended sediments. This issue is affected by geology and is partly predictable and manageable, but subtle features can lead to large negative effects.
