Ground Support 2023

10th International Conference on Ground Support in Mining and Underground Construction | 12-14 September 2023 | Perth, Western Australia


Information and deadlines for authors and presenters


Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event


Information and registration for event attendees

The First International Symposium on Ground Support in Mining and Underground Construction took place in Abisko, Sweden, 1983 under the theme of rockbolting: theory and application in mining and underground construction. This series of events has evolved over the years to cover all areas of ground support and provide a documented timeline of the significant advancements in ground support technology and practice in the last 38 years. These are reflected in the improved safety statistics and performance of excavations.

Ground support remains the main means to manage rockfalls; one of the major risks in underground mines. The latest developments and applications of ground support in mining and underground construction are of prime interest to mining practitioners worldwide where the objective is to mitigate rockfall.

Conference themes:

  • Ground support in corrosive environments
  • Ground support for rock bursting conditions
  • Numerical modelling of ground support in analysis and design
  • Rockfalls and failure mechanisms
  • In situ and laboratory testing
  • Support system design methods
  • Risk and performance assessment
  • Monitoring and performance assessment of ground support systems
  • Ground support quality control
