KINGSTON, Ontario, Dec. 21, 2018 /CNW/ -- ESG Solutions (ESG), a leading provider of passive microseismic monitoring solutions to the mining and geotechnical industries, is excited to announce the 8th edition of its popular Microseismic Symposium. The symposium, which targets ground control, geotechnical specialists and mine engineering professionals, will be held in Kingston, Ontario, Canada on June 9 to 11, 2019.
The Microseismic Symposium features technical presentations from mine operators, academia and other experts in the field - as well as ESG's microseismic experts.
Themes to be covered in the conference include:
Seismic analysis for the characterization of rock mass behaviour
Hazard assessment using seismic and other geotechnical data
Advances in integration of geotechnical data
Seismic insights for ground support assessment and monitoring
Along with technical presentations, ESG specialists will carryout a half-day, hands-on workshop on ESG's latest microseismic acquisition hardware and software – including best practices, tips and tricks. As in the past, ESG will host social activities during the event (details to follow).
"The mining industry is in exciting times," says Zara Anderson, General Manager of Mining and Geotechnical Services. "There is a substantial shift towards productivity through digital innovation and it is the mining companies and people like the participants attending this symposium who are driving this change and innovation. These past few years ESG has been working closely with mine sites to develop and implement new seismic techniques that can offer more insight into daily rock mass changes. The initial results have been promising and we look forward to presenting our findings at the symposium."
