Oct 22-24 Introduction to seismic risk in underground mines

Learn how to manage seismic activity in deep hardrock mines

You’re invited to attend a 2.5-day mining course, “Introduction to Seismic Risk in Underground Mines,” from Tuesday, October 22, to Thursday, October 24, 2024. Expert mining engineer Dr. Marty Hudyma reviews seismic risk management in hardrock mines, including rock mechanics, rockbursts, and rock engineering.

This course is intended for ground control engineers, mining engineers, technicians, geologists, senior engineers, and mine managers who want to learn more about managing seismic risk in mines. The course is primarily for underground mines, especially seismically active mines, but participants from surface mines who are experiencing seismicity are welcome to attend.



Dr. Marty Hudyma
Mining Engineer
Retired Associate Professor, Laurentian University

Discussion topics

This course reviews the problem of seismicity in deep underground hardrock mines. Participants will learn:

  • Seismicity in Mines - The Canadian Problem in 2024
  • Defining seismic risk management for mines
  • Basics of mine seismology
  • Seismic data analysis and re-entry times
  • The challenge of understanding rockburst damage

There is a strong focus on case studies and a review of the latest industry methods for reducing seismic risk.
