Hilton Surfers Paradise, 6 Orchid Avenue, Surfers Paradise, Queensland, 4217, Australia.

Following the huge success of our March 2023 meeting in Hobart, our next workshop will be on Mass Mining, Large open stoping and Caving.

It will be the first meeting we’ve held on the Gold Coast. It will be another workshop not to be missed. If you’d like to present or sponsor, please contact us at secretary@eagcg.org .

Finally, if you haven’t LinkedIn to our Group yet then do so. That way you can be kept up to date with what’s happening.

 

The EAGCG exists to provide a forum for ground control practitioners to exchange ideas and disseminate information on ground control in an informal environment. It also provides a technical support network for isolated members. It achieves these goals by holding two-day technical meetings twice a year at various mining centres or in nearby cities. The Group is independent; it exists for the members and is run by the members. Membership is open to all persons who attend any of the meetings and to all persons interested in ground control in mining in Australasia. Membership includes, but is not restricted to, mine site personnel, suppliers, consultants and regulators. There is no fee to belong to the Group. Attendance at meetings provides Chartered Professional Development (CPD) points.
