As mines become deeper, it becomes harder to exploit mineral resources safely and cost-effectively. Safety issues and the ongoing engineering challenges of high stress and deep mining are forcing stakeholders and suppliers to develop new technologies and improved equipment to deal with the industry’s ever-increasing need to exploit deeper mineral resources. In order to address this need, the first MRA Deep Mining conference, that will take place in Johannesburg from 15-17 July 2008, will focus on the critical safety issues facing the mining industry today.
