The 10th Australian AMD Workshop will run as a combination of short courses and a hybrid workshop

Today, more than ever, practical solutions for prediction, prevention and control of acid, neutral, and saline drainage are needed by the mining
industry in Australia and elsewhere. A leading edge practice spans the life cycle of mining projects, from exploration to closure and beyond, but also adapts to the longer and dynamic cycles of the resources industry, as well as climate change. Under pressure from commodity markets, some mines may go under ‘care and maintenance’ and some may approach closure. Therefore, innovative approaches to understanding and controlling residual risk is paramount. While minimising risk and costs is the obvious goal, the real cost is not getting it right. However, there are many successful case studies of methodologies and technology applications where things have worked well and there are also examples that pose challenging research questions.

The AMD Workshops are hosted by The University of Queensland's Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI), the Australian partner of the International Network for Acid Prevention (INAP).

AMD Workshop Demographics

The  AMD Workshop is for all stakeholders who have an interest in mining environments and sustainable mining practices. It
is for the mining industry representatives to share their experiences of their operations, and observe and reflect on solutions and
technology presented by consultants and research providers. It is also for the civil societies, government and the broader community.

We expect 150-200 delegates will attend, providing you with the unique opportunity to interact with industry at all levels, regulators,
government, and academia working in this important field.
