Mine Closure 2013

Eighth International Conference on Mine Closure

About Mine Closure 2013

This international conference hosted at the Eden Project in Cornwall, UK, brought together industry experts from around the world to share best practice on mine closure.

Mine Closure 2013 brought together industry experts from around the world to provide opportunities for networking, presenting research findings, and sharing best practice around minimising the environmental and social impacts of mine closure.

The conference was hosted by the Eden Project, a visitor attraction, educational charity and regenerated clay pit situated within the breath-taking landscape of the UK’s Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.

The programme – designed for professionals, from engineers to community engagement practitioners – incorporated three days of conference sessions as well as a weeklong schedule of related workshops and field trips within the county.

Mine Closure 2013 is part of the international series of conferences founded by The Australian Centre for Geomechanics. We worked with Cranfield University as our academic co-host.
