Society of Mining Professors: 9th Regional Conference 2018

17.10.2018 - 20.10.2018

TH Georg Agricola
Herner Straße 45, 44787 Bochum

The THGA will host the Society of Mining Professors' (SOMP) 9th Regional Conference with the topic "Technological Footprints of German Hard Coal Mining" under the auspices of RAG Aktiengesellschaft.

Starting in the Ruhr valley, underground hard coal mining went further North, following the dipping carboniferous formations down to a depth of some 1500 m nowadays, thus making it the deepest underground coal mines in the World. Increasing depth together with the objectives to improve efficiency, health and safety standards have made the German hard coal mining industry a pioneer of technological breakthrough developments.

The Conference will highlight these ”technological footprints“ in networking events, scientific discussions and a technical visit of the Prosper Haniel underground hard coal mine. For more information, program and registration, click here.
