Presentations covering open pit and underground operations across coal, base metal and precious metal sectors will be given by mine-based geological staff at the Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT) in Pullenvale.

The workshop has been put together by the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Geoscience Task Force and the Australian Institute of Geoscientists and Geostatistical Society of Australasia.
