The conference is an opportunity for those involved in mining to examine the basic issues of risk in mining:   What are the hazards? What is the probability of the hazards becoming reality? What are the consequences of things going wrong? How can you mitigate the chance (make robust) and consequences (make resilient) of risks? What risks can you tolerate as the mine owner, engineer, regulator or public? What regulation, corporate governance, funding and insurance is required mitigate risk?   Abstracts are invited in the following themes:    1) Risk identification and mitigation during site selection, design, construction and operation of mines, including:   Open pits and strip mines Underground mines Tailings dams Waste dumps and heap leach piles Water management and water management structures.   2) Risk identification and mitigation for mine closure and long-term post closure performance  

3) Risk identification and mitigation of human health and environment (other than occupational health and safety aspect

4) Risk assessment methodologies, including:

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Pathway-dose-response analyses for human health and the environment Probabilistic event tree analyses Bayesian or other methods\ Extreme event and long-term degradation assessment.   5) Risk costs, financing and assurance, including:   Financial risk Bonding Insurance and long-term risk monitoring Maintenance and mitigation plans.   6) Risk management, including Corporate and regulatory governance Design standards and review Construction and operational quality control and assurance Review boards, engineer of record, audits, safety inspections and continuous improvement processes.   7) Corporate and mine case histories.     Submit your abstracts by December 7, 2015 to risk@infomine.com
