A one-day-workshop on geology to mine design.

During the workshop subjects that are relevant to the research on alternative underground mining methods will be presented and discussed. There will lo be an exchange of ideas with the visiting professor Dr. Sourineni and industry professionals.

The goal of the workshop is to get bit more understanding of the genesis of ore deposits in Sweden (or the Nordic region) to help us in our search for alternative mining methods for these kinds of deposits.
