Scientific Workshop

Mining & Post-Mining Seismicity

Ineris is happy to invite you to join this Workshop on mining-induced seismicity & post-mining seismicity, organized on behalf of EPOS Sweden by Luleå University of Technology.

Mining-induced seismicity is a well-known issue that has become increasingly important as the underground mines go deeper and deeper. Post-mining seismicity has until know been poorly studied but recent research shows the importance of considering the 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 the research community involved in the EPOS-TCS (Thematic Core Service) for Anthropogenic Hazards (TCS-AH) and in the RFCS PostminQuake project in which Ineris is involved.
