 Abstract Many mining projects in developed and developing countries are located close to communities where they can have positive and negative impacts. It is essential that collaborative relations are built between the mining operation and the communities to allow project development without conflicts. This is a major challenge to mining companies as well as to host countries interested in ongoing mining investments. This conference will explore the relationships between mining operations and communities, as well as the approaches that mining companies take to develop effective engagement with the communities and the host governments.

[ID=679970] Go to top of page
 LocationFalmouth, United Kingdom
 Abstract This, the 4th International Symposium on Sustainable Minerals '16, is organised by MEI in consultation with Prof Markus Reuter. The rapid growth of the world economy is straining the sustainable use of the Earth’s natural resources due to modern society’s extensive use of metals, materials and products. An astute and conscious application and use of metals, materials and products supported by the reuse and recycling of these materials and end-of-life products is imperative to the preservation of the Earth’s resources. The realisation of the ambitions of sustainable use of metals, materials and resources demands that the different disciplines of the material and consumer product system are connected and harmonised. This conference will discuss all aspects of material and metal usage.
 Topics minerals, processing, engineering, mining, sustainability

22.NORMVIII — Eighth International Symposium on Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material
 Dates 18 Oct 2016 → 21 Oct 2016
[ID=748278] Go to top of page
 LocationRio de Janeiro, Brazil
 Abstract All minerals and raw materials contain radionuclides of natural origin. Usually, the levels of exposure to these radionuclides are not significantly greater than normal background levels. However in some industries (NORM industries), certain activities can give rise enhanced levels of radioactivity in their products, sub products, residues and wastes in such way that may need to be controlled by regulation. A list of industry sectors have been identified as the most likely to produce NORM: oil and gas production, the niobium and iron-niobium industry, manufacture of titanium dioxide pigments, the phosphate industry, the zircon and zirconia industry, and many other conventional mining and milling industries. The NORM occurrence is a challenge for the industries, which must comply with standards from nuclear industries in addition to the usual environmental and worker safety requirements.The NORMVIII symposium will address the radiation protection control of NORM, and will include the results of new research, explore practical case studies of industrial applications and waste disposal practices, evaluate the practical implication of international and national standards as well as identifying new societal needs and technical requirements for regulators and industry on NORM. Possible solutions for using, recycling and disposal of NORM residues will be another focus area, as well as the quality of NORM sampling and measurements.The event is an essential platform for NORM industries, academic and research institutions, and regulatory authorities to share experiences, review progress made, identify opportunities and provide an in-depth analysis of current challenges. The symposium offers a multitude of possibilities and opportunities for networking.
 Topics International and national standards on NORM – practical implications, Industry specific studies – Oil and gas, Coal industry, Heavy metal processing industries, Occupational radiation protection in industries involving NORM, NORM – residue and waste managements (reuse, recycling, reduction and disposal), Radon and Thoron in NORM industries, Decommissioning and Remediation of sites, Transport of NORM, NORM Metrology (sampling, analyses and measurements), Environmental impact associated with NORM industries, Natural Radioactivity, Risk Communication (workers and the public).

23.Monitoring and Modelling Mining Solutions 2016
 Dates 30 Oct 2016 → 02 Nov 2016
[ID=765393] Go to top of page
 LocationNorth Vancouver, BC, Canada
 Abstract Mine planning and management involve modeling all phases and aspects of the mine, from the ore body, through open pit stability, processing, to waste management facility performance, and the protection of the environment. To formulate a representative model, one needs a deep understanding of the physical systems and data to quantify the system and its performance. Once the model is in place, monitoring is undertaken. Monitoring data are compared to model predictions and the model is calibrated and planning for future management undertaken. This conference seeks to explore the many phases of mine-related modeling and monitoring. We will address many types of modeling and monitoring undertaken at a mine - from defining the ore grade, to assessing long-term groundwater changes resulting from mining.
 Topics Theory and practice of modelling, Model calibration, Monitoring methods, Using mine models to improve performance, Observational methods - their use and power.
