2nd EIG One Day Event
‘Surface water, groundwater and flooding in quarries and mines'
Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon
17th June 2015
As in 2013, the EIG is holding a one day meeting on 17th June 2015 covering live topics in an important area of the extractive industry; this time the topic is ‘Surface water, groundwater and flooding in quarries and mines’. A range of experienced speakers from across the industry will be covering latest developments, case histories and regulatory issues. Our recent experience of the wettest winter for 250 years has heightened the need for an up to date understanding of the problems associated with planning for water in our mineral workings. This is a meeting that should excite interest from many of those who attend the main EIG conference as well as others from across the industry. This will be a CPD event.
As previously, this meeting will be held at the Motor Museum Conference Centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire which is close to the M40. It is proposed to have a number of trade stands that focus on the topic.
Further details of the meeting including topics and speakers, trade stands etc and a booking form will be made available in January 2015.
What are EIG Conferences?
The Extractive Industry Geology (EIG) Conferences are renowned as a series of highly successful conferences held every 2 years that provide a unique scientific and technical shop window for the non-petroleum extractive industry.
It is run by geo-professionals working within the industry, with the aim of delivering a focused training event for people working in this sector.
The EIG Conference is an essential training event for all earth scientists associated with the extractive minerals sector, helping them to keep abreast of current and future trends, innovation and best practice.
In particular it will appeal to those involved in the following fields:
- Geotechnical Engineering
- Quarry Development Design and Planning
- Restoration and After Use
- Reserve and Resource Estimation and Reporting
Previous delegates have typically included:
- Governmental and Non-Governmental organisations (e.g. BGS, SEPA, EA, SNH, EH etc)
- Technical teams working for mineral operators
- Consultants supplying services to the non-petroleum extractive industry
- Those involved in research and development for the industrial minerals sector
