If you are interested in the use of geosynthetics in mining, or seek to use geosynthetics in mining, or need as a consultant to provide your client with advice on geosynthetics in mining, or you are a manufacturer or supplier of geosynthetics to mines, then you should join us March 10 to 12th on the upcoming EduMine webcast.
Here it the link to the course. Click on it, get the details, and register.
I am proud to be joined by experts. Terry Mandziak of SRK is beyond doubt the world’s leading expert on heap leach pads and their design, construction, operation, and closure. And of course the use of geosynthetics in heap leach pads. Terry is quiet, unassuming, unassertive—but his intellect is towering, his experience vast, and his engineering instinct superb. I am lucky to have worked with him and I am certain you will find his webcast presentations instructive, insightful, and informative. He is one of a kind and the leader of the pack.
Tarik Hadj-Hamou is an old friend. I owe him more than I can ever repay. He taught me so much. He is one of the old school of geosynthetics users having studied under Ed Kavazanjian and J.P. Giroud. And he worked for and with them for many years and continues to do so. He is congenial, of superb intellect, and a nice person, His wife is the best cook I know.
I have also invited a few young fellows to make twenty-minute presentations on their geosynthetics. They are the salesmen who promote and seek to sell their product. I know them, I like them, I respect them, and I invite them to present because I am convinced the future is theirs. You and they can and must solve issues in mining that I cannot even conceive. Just drink one more more drink in my remembrance when you solve the new problems using geosynthetics.
So come join us. It is cheap when you consider the cost of conference courses or conference attendance. We already have registrants from around the world. Join us and them and you need not travel or stay in lousy hotels in dangerous cities. Do it all from home or the comfort of your office. And please speak up: ask question; offer opinions; describe your case histories; and help us advance the cause of geosynthetics in mining.
Finally note that if you attend the webcast you will also get a free copy of the proceedings of the 2014 Conference held here in Vancouver on Geosythetic Solutions in Mining.
