Mine Closure 2022 Organiser

Australian Centre for Geomechanics

ACG Online Repository of Conference Proceedings

Since 2005, the ACG has published conference papers across the geotechnical mining spectrum, including: underground and open pit mining, paste and thickened tailings and mine closure. The repository aims to provide the mining geomechanics fraternity with open access, peer-reviewed conference proceedings that may assist readers to maintain and develop their skills, knowledge and capabilities.

The Australian Centre for Geomechanics (ACG) was formally established in 1992 as a University of Western Australia not-for-profit research centre in order to promote research excellence and continuing education in geomechanics, with particular emphasis on its application to the mineral and energy extraction sections of Australia’s resources industry.

The Australian Centre for Geomechanics is an unincorporated Joint Venture involving:

  • CSIRO Mineral Resources
  • The University of Western Australia — Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering

The ACG draws together staff knowledge, experiences and expertise from within the two groups forming the Centre and facilitates a multi-disciplinary approach to research and education in geomechanics. Research undertaken by the ACG attracts both national and global support and the outcomes of the projects are utilised to promote safer mining and environmental geomechanics practices, operating efficiencies and to meeting community expectations for sustainable mining practices.

With the guidance of strong industry representation on the Board of Management, and close collaboration with senior representatives of the mining industry, research, training and further education activities are tailored directly to the needs of industry. The ACG Board expects the Australian Centre for Geomechanics to be the focal point for industry on geomechanics issues and to address the needs of industry through a collaborative interdisciplinary approach.
