A workshop on underground mining will be held at the Wits Club on 27 September 2016 on the work by the Underground Communications Infrastructure subcommittee. This is an opportunity to ensure any regional priorities are considered in the work. This guideline will be a formal set of documents to be used by the mining industry as a reference for the frameworks, standards, processes and procedures supporting digital communications in an underground mine environment.
The second focus of the workshop will be a roundtable discussion about the Electric Mine: Battery Electric Vehicles Underground. It will include a review of work-to-date, from workshops in Toronto, Brisbane and Sudbury as well as the project plan focused on the aggressive target of a draft guideline by year-end.
