About Us

As part of the Australian Centre for Geomechanics (ACG)’s commitment to sharing research, knowledge and education in the geomechanics field, the ACG Online Repository of Conference Proceedings was created in order to make ACG conference papers more accessible for industry and academia. Since 2005, the ACG has published highly technical conference papers across the geotechnical mining spectrum, including: underground and open pit mining, paste and thickened tailings and mine closure. This repository provides the mining geomechanics fraternity with open access to these peer-reviewed conference papers that may assist readers to maintain and develop their skills, knowledge and capabilities.

Aside from allowing users to freely download numerous past and current conference papers, the site features a number of useful functions. This highly interactive and searchable repository provides importable citation information in various formats, links to the paper authors' profiles on ORCID, ResearchGate and LinkedIn, as well as the ability to share papers on social media.

Setting a benchmark for technology transfer and accessibility, this valuable online resource continues to develop and grow with each ACG mining and geomechanical event.

Open Access Sponsorship opportunities are available for ACG International mining events. Visit www.acg.uwa.edu.au/sponsorship to learn more.
