• The International Conference on Ground Control in Mining July 28-30, 2020 has been cancelled.
    It is in the best interest of all involved, coupled with state guidelines for events and gatherings that the difficult decision
    was made to cancel this important event.

    The expert volunteer authors from the 2020 International Conference on Ground Control in Mining create a widely anticipated
    program for this conference. We appreciate their hard work on behalf of the industry.
