This event brings together experts from across the quarrying industry. Looking at typical everyday situations faced by operators, we will examine ways to make your operations safer and more efficient.
The informative sessions will cover face surveying, geo-technical hazards, blasting, process plant optimisation and continuous improvement.
Afterwards there will be an informal networking event for mineral extractives professionals to meet and engage with other professionals.
The seminar programme includes the following presentations:
Quarry design, reserve optimisation and safety
Presentation covers the design of quarries to maximise reserves in hard rock quarries whilst maintaining an appropriate level of stability and hence safety for the operation.
Improve safety and reduce costs through face surveying and blast optimisation
This case study from Lafarge Holcim will demonstrate how using face surveying technologies can help operators reduce costs and improve the efficiency of the drilling and blasting process. There has also been an additional positive impact on the associated safety and environmental aspects of quarry management.
Getting the best performance out of your crusher
Getting the optimum performance out of your crushing operations can generate increased revenue as well as significant savings. By utilising key crusher operational techniques, at each stage of your reduction process, will help improve your crushers productivity and reliability, which can directly add to the bottom line.
Changes to ISO14001 - make sure you are prepared
The international environmental management standard is being revised with publication due in September 2015. This latest revision will reflect the latest trends and practices in environmental management and approach to sustainability.
Secure future profits through continuous improvement of processes and people
The challenges that will drive future operational performance and profits will be the ongoing active monitoring of processes and people. Continuous improvement programmes provide a framework to help operators manage sites more effectively for the long term.
Comprised of around 6,000 members in some 50 countries of the world, the Institute of Quarrying is the international professional body for quarrying, construction materials and the related extractive and processing industries.
Membership is open to individuals sharing our commitment to improving standards and lifelong learning. The long-term objective of the Institute is to promote progressive improvements in all aspects of operational performance through the medium of education and training.
