Slope Stability 2013 will provide a forum for open pit mining and civil engineering practitioners, consultants, researchers and suppliers worldwide to exchange views on best practice and state-of-the-art slope technologies. Best practice with respect to pit slope investigations, design, implementation and performance monitoring will be discussed during the symposium.

The ACG is delighted to host this symposium in Brisbane for the first time. Past symposia have been held in Vancouver, Canada, 2011; Santiago, Chile, 2009; Perth, Australia, 2007; and Cape Town, South Africa, 2006.
