20th to 22nd September 2023, Luleå University of Technology (LTU), Luleå, Sweden

EPOS Sweden and RFCS PostminQuake project

On behalf of EPOS Sweden, LTU is glad to invite you to participate in the Scientific Workshop on Mining and Post-Mining Seismicity. Mining-induced seismicity is a well-known issue that has become increasingly important as underground mines go deeper and deeper. Post-mining seismicity has until now been poorly studied, but recent research shows that it should be considered as an induced seismic hazard in mine-closure procedures.

The main objective of this workshop will be to share knowledge about recent advances in both domains. It will gather mining engineers from Europe and research community involved in the EPOS Thematic Core Service for Anthropogenic Hazards (TCS-AH) and in the RFCS PostminQuake project.

The Workshop is planned for two days (08.30 to 17.00) and a preliminary workshop programme available for download.

Day 1 – will be for presentation and discussion of the results from research in both mining- and post-mining induced seismicity.

Day 2 – will be for introduction to EPOS Sweden, and the EPOS TCS Anthropogenic Hazards EPISODES platform; a discussion and brainstorming will identify important and challenging problems that need attention and investigation.

A site visit at Malmberget mine (LKAB) (~250 km from Lulea) will be organized on Day 3 (maximum number of attendees – 14).

The registration for the meeting is open until September 6th: https://www.trippus.net/Scientificworkshoponmining
