Upcoming Meetings

  • 25th Annual Mine Design, Operations & Closure Conference
    May 7-11, 2017 | Fairmont, Montana

    The Mine Design, Operations & Closure Conference will offer the latest in mining-related technologies and methods, delivered by industry professionals. The conference includes a session on remediation and reclamation.

  • 2017 Pennsylvania Abandoned Mine Reclamation Conference
    June 21-22, 2017 | Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania

    This conference will highlight success stories, challenges, and economic development construction projects dealing with abandoned mine lands. Discussions will be held on the future of abandoned mine reclamation in Pennsylvania and how to address the sunset of the Abandoned Mine Land Trust Fund.

  • 13th International Mine Water Association Congress
    June 25-30, 2017 | Lappeenranta, Finland

    IMWA 2017's Congress theme is "Mine Water & Circular Economy." Circular economy means, "closing the loop" of product lifecycles by improving recycling and re-use. In case of mine water, this means that mining wastes and mine water are used to extract valuable materials, such as metals, fertilizers or adsorbents for waste water purification.

  • National Association of Abandoned Mine Land Programs, 2017 Annual Conference
    September 24-27, 2017 | Lexington, Kentucky

    The technical sessions of the 39th Annual Conference will provide valuable exchanges of issues specific to reclamation specialists. Field trips will feature stream restoration sites, AML reclamation sites, limestone quarries that host the University of Kentucky underground blast laboratories and a tour of the Toyota Manufacturing Plant which has benefited from low electricity rates from the abundance of our Kentucky Coal.

  • International Conference on Acid Rock Drainage (ICARD)
    September 10-14, 2018 | Pretoria, South Africa

    Held every 3 years, ICARD brings together mining industry representatives, consultants, researchers and regulators from all continents. The conference involves a series of technical sessions that focus on specific acid and neutral drainage issues.  The papers presented during the sessions are selected to represent the most current developments in the field and cover different experiences from around the world.  A number of other events also take place in conjunction with the ICARD, such as field trips and specialised short courses.

 CLU-IN Mining Sites Webinar Series

 Workshops on Hardrock Mine Geochemistry and Hydrology

EPA's Region 10, ORD, and OSRTI hosted a three-part workshop series on hardrock mine geochemistry and hydrology in 2013. The goals included enhancing participants' understanding of the key issues regarding water chemistry predictions, identifying potential sources of contamination from mine sites, and describing practices to mitigate or reclaim facilities to protect natural resources. Presenters included experts from EPA Headquarters, Regions, and ORD; the U.S. Geological Survey; and the U.S. Forest Service. The workshops were open to all agencies, tribes, consultants, and the general public, and are now archived and available for streaming. Supplementary materials and resources provided by the instructors are also available for download below.
