23–24 April, 2015 - Conference
Elangeni Maharani Hotel, Durban
25 April 2015 - Half Day Technical Visit
Harbour Entrance Tunnel Site Visit and Harbour Boat Cruise
This conference is in response to the Civil and Mining industry being under immense pressure to deliver projects fast, efficiently and as safely as possible. Mechanised underground excavation and support installation is proving to be an invaluable and cost effective tool in the execution of a project. Technology exists for mechanised excavation where tunnels can be excavated from as small as 300mm to in excess of 18 metres in order to access ore bodies, build road or railway tunnels, facilitate the installation of utilities, construct storage caverns for gas and oil, etc.
It is recommended that delegates interested in the mining application of tunnel boring attend both days.
