The Indian mining sector has always been striving for achieving optimal extraction and utilisation of mineral resources under the constraints of deeper-horizon of mine workings, lower-level of mechanization, smaller-scale of mines, stringent-provisions of safety and environmental regulations, poor-planning of infrastructure, stressed-management of surface rights, etc. Moreover, as India has adopted the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of United Nation Organization, mining companies must determine their focus, develop strategies and align their systems and processes with the environment, social and economic aspects of SDGs. These goals can be realised only through scientiﬁc, sustainable, productive and effective mining practices with due attention to design, mechanisation, safety and management aspects of mining.
The landscape of technological advancements and innovations is changing with the fast pace in every walk of life including the mining activities. Numerous advances are being noticed worldwide in the domains of mine methods, mechanisation, management & Safety to improve the capability, efficiency, effectiveness and reliability of mining systems. The adoption and diffusion of these advancements will be the cornerstone for mining companies for negotiating the issues of optimal extraction under existing geomining constraints and staying competitive. Therefore, to keep abreast of these advances in mining, the industries, researchers, academics, policymakers and other stakeholders should come together to interact, share, and collaborate for making Indian mining industry world-class.
In view of the above, CSIR—Centra| Institute of Mining and Fuel Research (CSIR—C|MFR), Dhanbad; a premier R&D institute in the country, in association with the Institution of Engineers, Dhanbad Chapter will be organising a National Conference on "ADVANCES IN MINING” (AIM-2020) during 14-15 February 2020 at CSIR-CIMFR, Dhanbad. The conference aims to provide an effective common platform for interactions and deliberations amongst all stakeholders about the recent advances in mining, exchange ideas, address the core issues of mining for further advancement, promote the growth and sustainable development of mining industries. It will also provide an update about the recent advancements in the area of mining research and its application.
Corporate Bodies, Policy Makers, Industries, R&D Organisations, Academic Institutions, Research Scholars and Students are requested to register for the AIM-2020 by 10"‘January 2020. The corresponding fees for delegates are as follows:
