Ventilation is an essential part of underground hard rock mining. Not only does it ensure that air is sufficient for the operation of machinery and mining personnel, but it also serves to minimise dust and other particulates harmful to worker health. Furthermore, the reduction of harmful gases such as carbon monoxide and methane is a crucial factor in reducing the risk of underground explosions and poisoning.
Following the success of the East Coast Mine Ventilation 2010 event, Mining IQ is now bringing the industry’s best to the West Coast and to hard rock mines Australia-wide. Hard Rock Mine Ventilation 2011 aims to address a variety of issues pertinent to the continued success of mine site ventilation officers and technicians.
Session topics include:
This event will allow you to learn about a variety of practical strategies and techniques for tackling these issues. This will allow you to avoid negative inspections, reduce spending on power costs, and improve the health and safety of your workmates and friends.
We are pleased to announce that Mike Howes will be participating in Hard Rock Mine Ventilation 2011 by providing both a double-session feature on ventilation improvement strategies, and a workshop providing guidance on mine cooling for mines which are deep or which struggle with high or complex ambient temperatures. With extensive experience spanning decades and continents, Mike is perfectly placed to provide an overview of the industry and give guidance on how to improve your site.

Hard Rock Mine Ventilation 2011 provides a forum for experienced ventilation officers and technical services superintendents to receive ongoing training and networking with others in the industry.
With so few dedicated forums for continued interaction and industry updates on ventilation for hard rock mines, this conference provides a valuable opportunity to meet, greet, and learn from the best in the business. Find out how other sites are conducting fan upgrades, discover new technologies for dust management, or hear the latest updates on diesel particulate filtration.
As the first and only dedicated hard rock ventilation conference, the event will:
This is a great opportunity for experienced ventilation professionals to upgrade and update their knowledge and keep on top of changes in the industry.
As well as providing information for experienced VOs, Hard Rock Mine Ventilation 2011 is also a great event for new engineers to meet and strategise with established ventilation officers, technical services managers and mining engineers.
With turnover for ventilation departments at an all-time high, this event provides a valuable opportunity for the next generation of ventilation officers to learn about the value of ventilation on site. For example, case studies on issues crucial to worker health and safety will demonstrate how important the work of a ventilation officer or technician is to the continued productivity and profitability of the mine site.
These opportunities for graduate growth will be provided in a variety of ways:
In this way managers, ventilation officers and graduate engineers can all gain access to the best in the business and continue to expand their knowledge of ventilation strategies and technologies.
Hard Rock Mine Ventilation 2011 will draw together ventilation personnel including:
