Dr. Gennaro G. Marino, P.E., D.GE will be presenting “Mine Subsidence Engineering: An Overview” at the March 2019 Meeting of the Society of Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration St. Louis Chapter on March 21, 2019 in St. Louis, MO.

This presentation covers key aspects of mine subsidence engineering, a subject that is not well understood, and embraces a number of engineering disciplines. It focuses on the cause of mine subsidence and how mine stability relates to the resulting ground movements. Different mining and geologic conditions determine the mode of failure of the mine. The mode of mine failure in turn affects the resulting subsidence movement. Prediction of subsidence and damage potential are also key aspects of subsidence engineering. Examples of expected subsidence damage as well as mine stabilization will be shown.This presentation will be presented in a manner that will be understandable to anyone that would be interested in learning more about mine subsidence.

This presentation will be worth 1 PDH.

The cost to attend is $25, which covers drinks and dinner.
