UNSW School of Mining Engineering and ACARP invite you to the launch of Professor Jim Galvin’s textbook and to a workshop on innovation and research needs for safe modern mining that will precede the launch. Keynote topics and speakers will be:
This textbook consolidates 50 years of knowledge and experience in mining and geotechnical engineering and presents it in a risk management framework as a basis for improving safety, innovation and economics in mining, especially in the underground coal sector. Subsidised by the Australian Coal Association Research Program, the Minerals Council of Australia and the author, the book has been written for both students and practitioners. Its author, Emeritus Professor Jim Galvin, has a relatively unique international background in directing research and academic organisations, operating and managing mines, and overseeing risk management in industry.
“The work provides an excellent, detailed and much needed account of ground engineering for underground coal mining. A particular strength of the book is the way in which good underground coal mining practice is identified and discussed within an understandable, logical and often qualitative, applied mechanics framework. It provides a fine example of what good mining engineering argument and practice should be.”
